Low Energy New Build

We built this brand new super insulated and airtight home for a young family on the site of a demolished 1960s property. The house is masonry construction with a cutting edge adhesive airtight layer, three times as much insulation as you might normally expect, triple glazing and a mechanical ventilation system. The verandah and cladded picture window projection give vital shading to stop the property overheating in the summer months.
