About This Project

A low energy dwelling built to passivhaus standards in the Wye Valley designed by Hills + Co Architects.

Due to solid rock ground conditions the groundwork team completed the hard task of installing sufficient drainage and the insulated raft foundation with power floated concrete floor finish. With all of this complete the carpentry team are currently on-site erecting our closed panel timber frame system completed with blown in cellulose fibre insulation.

Over the next few weeks the roof will be on and the windows in making the building water tight by the end of the year.
