Manufacture and installation of Timber Frame structure including insulation, Cladding, windows, doors, and first-fix joinery
This project was close to our hearts; the clients wanted to reduce their environmental 'footprint' and so designed this simple, contemporary bungalow to incorporate the features they had always dreamed of.
A truly-delightful eco-home, the clients decided that the house was so energy-efficient (even in the winter months), that they wouldn't need to install any heating - so they didn't !. Instead, this entire home is heated with just a single wood burning stove.
A tricky site in all respects; elevated site for groundwork, hand-lifting of the panels and roof trusses up a steep incline, and no space for scaffold on two sides.
