The project was to construct the shell to a watertight stage and then hand over to the customers for a self build completion.


Working for the first time with Steven Wade, his flair for the design on this build was a refreshing challenge.

The shell consisted of a grand main section with full length windows through both floors, full height gable windows, an exposed oak gluelam framework creating the main roof structure, angled arch buttresses and an oval shaped car port with a sedum roof, all creating a challenging build. Externally a soft red brick and coursable flint work sit well under the roof of reclaimed tiles ageing the property with ease.

The green energy element incorporated a plethora of technology, ground source, photo voltaic panels, solar panels and heat recovery, all leading to a futuristic plant room.

Having the customer so closely involved enabled a few minor alterations to enhance an already great design and suit the living of the customer.

Handing the completed shell over, the customers finished their home to an exacting standard with endless enthusiasm and hard work whilst skilfully managing an array of sub contractors.

The result; a light spacious open plan living area over two floors with stylish bedroom and bathroom complimenting the build.
