About this Project

The house is built using a double stud timber frame with a total wall insulation depth of 300mm Warmcel. The roof is constructed using metal-web ‘Posi-Joists’ and incorporates 300mm Warmcel insulation.

The external timber frame is clad in a woodfibre board which is a windtightness board and on the internal face is 15mm OSB, this is taped with Tescon Vana airtightness tape. The house has achieved an initial airtightness test of 0.9ach/hr.

The triple glazed windows and doors have been supplied and fitted by PYC and are the Green Building Store ‘Performance’ range. Suitable for most Passive House projects in the UK.

Following feedback from our clients over the years the house is highly energy efficient, throughout the build we used Passive House principles of construction.
