With over 25 years of experience in the construction industry and a lifetime of practical skills, you're in safe hands


“There's nothing like building your own house to give you an understanding of your clients needs.”

Dan Wells

After decades of working for construction companies in Sussex, Dan Wells decided the time had come to do things differently...

Dan's home build near Lewes, East Sussex, an extension to a 16th Century farmhouse (pictured above) is testament to his eye for detail. Over two decades working in the construction industry in Sussex has provided an outlet for his creative, practical, and engineering skills.

Dan has experience of both modern and traditional new builds , extensions, conversions and garden studios and enjoys creating spaces that are in harmony with their surroundings. 

Dan recognised a need to do better by his clients by being upfront and honest from the start. He set up Intrinsic Spaces and developed a bespoke, exhaustive quotation. Good communication is key to a successful build and by involving his clients from the very beginning, Dan empowers them to participate fully in the building project. To find out more about how this differs from a 'guesstimate', read this post:


 Dan is upfront and honest about what is involved which is why he set up his own business and created his bespoke quotation service. Dan recognised the value in providing an exhaustive quote that breaks down every detail of the build and empowers his clients to participate fully, taking the worry out of the project. 

"Client's feel stressed when they are not in control". Dan created his bespoke quotation service to give his clients confidence and a deeper understanding of their project and identify aspects that may have been overlooked.


In particular, Dan enjoys creating spaces that look like they evolved naturally, because they are in harmony with their surroundings.



Construction has always been part of my life. I was born and brought up on a farm. Here I learnt how to maintain buildings and machinery from an early age.

What's more, I developed a love of outdoor life.

After college, I went down various routes, including learning to fly aircraft and hot air balloons. I also worked in technical sales and marketing.  

But I always knew I wanted to do something independent and creative.

So, for a number of years I worked in family owned building companies.

That was over twenty years ago. And today, not only do I run a successful building firm, but I've also built my own house in the beautiful Sussex countryside.

Have a project in mind, let’s talk.....
