Event Details

This home is currently being built by a couple motivated by environmental principles and years of living in expensive energy inefficient rented property. The construction is underway- and visiting to see the home now before all of the eco materials are covered up is a real treat!

The building is made timber frame construction, with wood wool board used externally then lime rendered, strawbales have been used internally. They have used sheeps wool insulation in the gable ends and loft and will be laying a earthern clay floor downstairs and possibly using Diathonite for the floors upstairs.

The hot water and heating will be generated through a pellet stove and solar hot water. This couple really are self building- completing most of the work themselves with the help of an electrician and plumber. 

Please be advised this will be a visit to a working building site and sturdy footwear will be required. The stairs in this property are not completed so access to the higher level will be via a ladder. Visitors come onto the site at their own risk. The toilet is not plumbed in so visitors may want to use the local pub.

Parking

There is parking at the property.

The site has uneven ground and is not currently wheelchair accessible.
