Have your House made into a Box

Whatever the size, shape or style of your house, we can make a box to match it.

All we need is a clear photo

The boxes are approximately 5" long x 4" high, depending on your house, and are made of birch ply, with the roof forming the lid.

Price Guide from £60 3D additions (porches etc) at small extra cost.

Exact quotation on request.

Please book well in advance.

Illustrated on this page are just a few examples of our Houseboxes, which are now in collections around the world. Please view some of our work by clicking here.

Starting from your photographs, we produce a scale model in the form of a box, on which your house is painted in every detail. Architectural features, climbing plants, roof tiles, conservatories and so on are faithfully reproduced in vivid, individual style.

Trompe l'oeil effects can be used to convey porches, bay windows, balconies, decorative brickwork etc. On the other hand, most of these features benefit from being built on in 3D. As you can see from the pictures, no shape has defeated us yet.


Houseboxes have been popular presents for birthdays, weddings, housewarmings and anniversaries. Many people have had one made when leaving a much-loved house.

Occasionally, we have been asked to reproduce a house as it was in the past, from old photos, sketches and childhood memories.

We like to think our boxes might be handed down from generation to generation.
