_ Example House building plans - Self build, 3 Bedroom low energy life time home design _
The following example self build house is a 3 bedroom passive home, designed with life time adaptions in mind.
This project has been featured in the Homebuilding and Renovating magazine and in the HouseBuilder's bible 9th Edition.
Designed as a timber frame on a concrete beam and block floor. Very high levels of insulation was specified along with exceptional air tightness, this along with high specification windows, heat recovery and solar hot water panels means the owners will never have a heating bill. The sizes and positioning of windows have been set to also ensure the house will not over heat in summer while getting the optimum balance of solar gain in winter.
Underground tanks have been installed to harvest the rainwater and recycle the greywater to significantly reduce the mains water consumption of the dwelling.
