Self-build to Passivhaus Standard, Chilham, Kent

This is a self-build to Passivhaus standard, the first dwelling we designed to this standard in 2007.

A traditional design was created for the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The detailing was designed to be suitable for a self-builder, we designed I joists that could be fabricated on site, window details to match traditional design yet avoid thermal bridges. Cavity walls with 300mm full fill insulation and carefully detailed lintels.

As of summer 2018, the building will be finished by Christmas, but we are not sure which year!

Features include MVHR and solar thermal.
