Our family business has always been in manufacturing, originally making traditional billboards and advertising hoardings in the Champagne region of France. By 2006 we restructured to concentrate on supplying pre-fabricated modular buildings — a response to a changing marketplace — and STM Modules, Create A Cabin’s parent company was launched. The prefabricated cabins use a construction system similar to billboards, therefore it was a natural progression for our product to evolve into a cost- effective bespoke prefabricated modular building kit that was designed to order, quick to make and easy to build.
At that time, many agricultural and rural businesses were looking for ways to create new revenue streams, diversify or add value by selling directly to their customers. In particular, we noticed that many commercial premises have unused buildings and our prefabricated DIY cabins could be easily and cost-effectively used to repurpose these areas. By installing a modular building within an existing structure, it creates a fit-for-purpose useable space for a fraction of the cost of a new build and gives instant space to any business.
