Coombe Farm passive house self-build

Our client at Coombe Farm has sent us a photo of progress on site of his self-build project. The building, a converted Dairy Barn is part of a small collection of buildings designed by bere:architects around a several hundred year old thatch cottage and is being constructed to the Passive House standard.

There’s something magical about the lantern like quality in the darkness. A beacon project for others to follow! Keep up the good work James!

Assisted self-build Passivhaus

Working with the QS of the Ebbw Vale prototype Passivhaus homes in Wales, bere:architects and Richard Whidborne have put together a package of materials and suppliers that could help a self builder to construct a super low energy Passivhaus for under £100,000*. All specialist skills and services, including specialist construction of the timber frame, installation of the plumbing, solar hot water, heat recovery and the electrics are accounted for.
