‘Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.’ Steve Jobs

 

Three key things for comfortable, low energy houses:

  • Thermal blanket – a continuous layer of insulation around the whole house (floor, walls, roof), including triple glazed windows and doors.
  • Airtightness – a separately-identified, continuous layer around the whole house that prevents air escaping – no drafts, no heat escaping.
  • Ventilation strategy to supply fresh air and retain the heat: heat recovery needs airtightness of less than about 3 air changes per hour in a pressure test to be effective.

 

We are taking a holistic approach to achieve:

  • Comfortable, convenient living with style
  • Lowest practical energy demand
  • Sensible build costs
  • A long term view on quality, longevity and maintenance.
