Building your own home is something many people aspire to and designing with the future needs of the family in mind is critical. Sustainability is a huge consideration driving use of raw materials and energy efficiency in the smart home. Walls and roof need to be insulated correctly and it is important to pay special attention to air tightness to optimise both heat and ventilation

This property was a new build which truly embraced sustainability where installed were a complete plant room with ground source heat pumps, solar panels, Tesla power bank, under floor heating upstairs and downstairs and beautiful yet water efficient bathroom products. Energy bills on this property should be in the region of only £300 per year.
