In this free interactive online tour you’ll learn about how this new-build was designed to be a spacious family home with quality craftsmanship and materials present throughout, and sustainability at the core of its design.
This striking new-build was prefabricated in Baufritz’ factory in Germany and erected by them in 3 days onto prepared groundworks. Hosts Adrian and Judy placed a strong emphasis on personal and planetary health during the material choice, consciously choosing to avoid use of MDF, PVC and paints containing toxins which can affect indoor air quality. The future sustainability of the house has been well thought out, as the house is recyclable if demolished, or it can be dismantled, moved and re-erected elsewhere.
Key features of this home:
- External and internal insulation throughout: Triple-glazed windows, wood fibre insulation in walls, roof and underfloor insulation.
- Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR).
- Solar Cache hot water heating.
- The house is carbon positive: the frame and most of the walls are made of timber, including the larch cladding, therefore locking up the carbon absorbed during tree growth.
