This interesting project involved the construction of a new extremely energy efficient dwelling to replace a demolished house.
The property is set in a secluded rural location within mature wooded grounds. Working with A-Tec Design, we were able to construct a dwelling which sets the very highest standards in levels of insulation and energy efficiency so as to closely approach Passive Housestandards.
The dwelling has no boiler, relying entirely on solar hot water and a wood burner (with a back boiler) for all heating needs. Larsen Trusses, timber frame construction and double thickness insulation all help achieve the exemplary thermal performance.
Tregye Wood is clad with locally grown cedar boarding, and has an innovative green roof consisting of Epiphytic Bromeliads (air plants) which were grown on site prior to the completion of the construction phase.
"Everything went remarkably smoothly during the build, with everyone being friendly and great. We are thrilled to bits with our new home!"Fiona and John Lanyon, Clients
