OUR COMPANY MISSION
Timber Home Kits was established just over ten years ago, through prayer and Godly vision with Biblical ethics and values, to accommodate the building trend shifts over the changing times and economic climates. As we look forward, we aim to grow more as a company, negotiating the changes that lie ahead and to see the opportunities for healthy positive developments.
Over the next seven years we hope not only to continue to build all over Southern Africa and its surrounding Islands, but strengthen our networks and become established as one of the leading Timber Frame builders, with projects in every region. We aim to maintain our standards of building across a wider spectrum of designs and budgets, for both those that want us to complete to an expertly mastered fine finish, as well as those who want a precision kit that they can rewardingly build themselves with our plans or guidance. With an increased efficiency in logistics, we aim for results that will keep us affordable and facilitate our service to the community in being a trusted and well know name in providing quality housing, fulfilling the dreams of satisfied home owners for future generations.
