Self-build for everyone

Steenvlinder is a community-driven developer for self-builders. We believe that any form of self-build will result in a variety of well-designed and better built homes, where people can live happier lives. We see proud people and pleasant places develop. We enable home seekers to become home builders. 

Self-build made easy

We want everyone to have a chance to build their own home, designed to meet their needs and adapt to changing requirements over time – but above all to match their budget and their scope of possibilities. While it may seem like an option that is out of reach for most of us, we make self-build more accessible than ever.

Read more about Steenvlinder and our self-build products. Designed to make the process around self-build easier for the customer. Or take a look at our first scaled-up self-build project in Ashford: Orchard Farm Kent.

Self-build in Kent

At Orchard Farm we are creating a green landscaped development for self-builders, on the northern edge of Ashford, just a 38 minutes commute to London by train.


Develop at our risk


We give people a chance to build their own unique home. Self-build plots, shell homes or shell apartment: it doesn't matter what they choose or how they do it, they make their own decisions. And they should! To live in your own cleverly built home is your prerogative. Be proud of it and feel empowered. You’ve got this!

Community building


Giving our customers more control over their design and their end-product generates a positive energy that is needed to push change. They will take notice of the wider community and seek connection. Together they create a lively and an engaged community. This can result in communal green spaces, shared car use or just fun activities.


Self-build creates unique homes, built by proud homeowners and as a result we see a larger variety of well-designed homes which enrich neighbourhoods and cities. Housing diversification is important. It gives a fresh and unique approach to, perhaps, deprived areas and invigorates progress. People can live healthily, responsibly and enjoy their home and surroundings. 

Projects in the Netherlands

As Steenvlinder started the quest for self-build in The Netherlands, we are excited to give you an overview of the projects currently in progress (or completed). In the UK we see great potential to expand on the possibilities of self-build for individuals and groups.
