Welcome to SB Homes. We’re a family owned and run housebuilding company based in the Colne Valley, Huddersfield.

For almost 30 years, we’ve designed and built more than 500 homes that people are proud to live in. Our homes have unique designs that suit the Colne Valley, whilst preserving traditional elevations, so whether we built a home in 2000 or 2020, we can look back at every site, knowing that we did it justice.

Our Family - SB Homes, Byram family

To us, it’s personal

From Our Family, To Yours

We’re a family business with deep roots in the Colne Valley. Not only do we live and work here, but 200 years of our ancestors are from here.

There are few people who care about the area as deeply as we do, and we’re proud to run a company that provides exceptional homes, creates employment opportunities, improves the area, and gives back to the economy.

“On meeting Steve in 1998, I still remember my first impression. Work boots and work clothes, dirty grufted hands. He had a plan and a head full of ideas about how to move his building company forward. It was the start of a great working relationship and friendship.”

SB Homes' in-house technical team is unrivalled

In-house Expertise, Like No Other

Technically Rich

We have a deep understanding of design, engineering, and technical housebuilding, all within our in-house team.

It’s incredibly rare for an SME housebuilder to have this level of experience in-house.

We design and build our own flood defence and drainage systems.

SB Homes all started with our founder, Stephen.

He started dry stone walling aged 10.

He’s built everything from septic tanks (hundreds of them, in fact) to chalets in France.

Today, he’s a master at his craft, and is trusted by professionals and industry bodies for his expertise.

Now with a team of 35+, he still leads the business from the front, almost 30 years since inception.
