Meet SB Homes' Designer, Steve Mitchell

18th December 2018

  1. After over 16 years with SB Homes, Steve shares what his typical week looks like, what he loves about his job and how he spends his spare time...


  1. 1.What's your job title



2.How long have you worked at SB Homes?

Sixteen and a half years – it feels like a lifetime ago since I started here!


3.What does your typical week look like?

I spend a lot of my week drawing plans, liaising with planning officers, meeting customers to discuss the layout and other requirements for their new home. 

I also visit our sites to ensure tradesmen have all the necessary information to carry out their work.

4.What do you love about your job?

I would have to say the variety of work and satisfaction of seeing the end product! Our homes are of exceptional quality, even if I do say so.


5.Why should someone buy an SB Homes property?

Our properties are good quality of build and customers have the opportunity to develop the design to their specific requirements.


6.What’s your biggest achievement in work?

Our current development, Empire Works, is very impressive. It’s a flagship site where we’ve pulled out all the stops to show the quality of our homes.

Phase three – set to be released in January – already has 200 people signed up to receive details.


 7.When you’re not at work, where can we find you?

Playing sport or in the pub!


8.Describe your dream home

Honestly, I don't really have an idea of a 'dream home' - which is surprising to say that my job role involves designing homes. 

I think that the main things I'd want out of a home is - a good size kitchen, walking distance to the village, with great views!


9.Where would you like to see SB Homes in ten years?

Continuing to build good quality homes within the Colne Valley area and beyond!
