Steel kit homes: an owner builders view

Steel kit homes are sold as ready made options for home builders, but are they a good option for the owner builder? Kit homes have been around for decades in both wood and steel, as well as in many forms such as modular, yurt, octagonal, cottage, cabin and log houses, barns, panelised, and, for the adventurous, geodesic domes.

Steel kit homes are also provided up to many stages: frame only, to lockup, lockup plus internal linings, plus doors and architraves/skirts, and some provide a basic standard of PC items such as bathroom, laundry and kitchen fittings. Others also provide flatpack kitchens. What I'm pointing out here is not all kits are the same, component levels vary, and so does Owner Builder capacity.
