Self Build Pair of Passivhauses in Thanington Without

A bother and sister brought up in a bungalow built by their father after Word War II, inherited the land and wanted to build a pair of houses.  We secured planning permission for a pair of semi detached Passivhauses which proved to be the most efficient scheme we have ever designed.

Regrettably, for funding reasons the houses had to be split into detached units, making a huge change to the overall efficiency, however, they are still Passivhaus and will be certified on completion.

These are true self-build, being primarily built by a plumber and a renewables specialist, with weekend assistance from sons in law who are qualified carpenters.

A full timber frame design was prepared by a specialist, then sent for CNC cutting by specialist suppliers.  The frame is nearly complete.
