New-build house with detached oak framed garage.
This eco-house was built to an exceptional airtightness rating of 0.296 cu.m/hr/m² @50Pa which, in combination with an integral MVHR (mechanical ventilation heat recovery) system resulted in a house that is heated by solar gain and its occupants for most of the year.
An oak framed veranda, natural stone and slate, zinc rainwater goods, oak cladding and through-coloured render were brought together to create a harmonious yet characterful family home.
