Client background information

Mr & Mrs Allen decided to demolish and rebuild on their site. They wanted a larger, more modern and energy efficient property to allow their family room to grow and chose timber frame as it was a quick route to a watertight house.

They had no previous experience of self-build.

Project overview

Initially, the brief was to construct a timber frame property with:

  • Rainwater recycling plant.
  • Ground source heat pump.
  • Underfloor heating.
  • ‘Smart’ entertainment system.
  • Mini sewerage treatment plant.
  • Integrated hovering system.

The house was watertight within four weeks despite having to dig down six feet across the site to achieve the necessary ridge height.

During the demolition a survey revealed the possible presence of bats. The ideal solution was to revert to a traditional truss roof to accommodate the bats but this was not possible. It was necessary to work with the architect and environmental agencies to develop the compromise solution to build a garage with a truss roof which had to include bat boxes and heat mats!
