The Hen House

Our considered structural design dramatically reduced construction costs:

Despite the tight, steeply sloping site we worked cleverly with the architects and the existing ground levels to avoid the need for a single retaining wall in our design.

A very efficient and elegant design, using structural insulated timber panels, simple steel sections and a masonry plinth level, allowed the structure to work in harmony with the architectural design. Yet our approach saved 30% in construction time compared to traditional construction methods.

This is a home that sits lightly in its landscape, with minimal running costs and maximum delight.

“It’s just over 8 weeks since we moved into our new home, and we still can’t believe that we get to live here. It feels like we’ve moved to a new country rather than to the bottom of the garden!”.
