Energy Efficient Traditional Timber Framed House Construction

Yes – we built this house from scratch. We started with digging out the site to lay the foundations and worked up from there! We had to overcome numerous difficulties with this build, one of them attaching to a granite rubble party wall with the neighbouring house. Another was to incorporate the (probably) biggest cantilever in Devon! We also wanted to make it as energy efficient as possible, so we built an air tight design with an MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery ) unit inside the house for amazing air quality without the heat loss. So this house is where traditional meets the modern, with super comfortable living, high energy efficiency and pretty low bills!
