Project Description

This home was one of three energy-efficient properties we constructed at the Stoneworks Garth housing development in the village of Crosby Ravensworth in Cumbria.

  • The airtight frame in place at 15 Stoneworks Garth by Eden Insulation
  • Eden Insulation starts erecting the airtight frame at 15 Stoneworks Garth
  • Roof panel lifted into place at 15 Stoneworks Garth by Eden Insulation
  • Roof construction at 15 Stoneworks Garth by Eden Insulation
  • Constructing the airtight frame at 15 Stoneworks Garth by Eden Insulation

 At plot 15 Stoneworks Garth, our clients were self-builders committed to constructing a home with very low energy use and high thermal performance. 

Like the other two properties we constructed in this development, this build was part of the Lyvennet Community Trust self-build scheme to provide affordable homes for local people. The design for this two-storey house included a ‘warm roof’ at the first floor, giving the family as much habitable space as possible.

We constructed the house using our timber-panel method, erecting the panels on site using a crane. The panels were injected with insulation in our factory and sealed for airtightness using a reflective foil layer.

There was no external block leaf on this building, with aqua board fitted to counter battens, fastened to the timber frame.

Features

  • Highly insulated with injected cellulose insulation
  • Highly airtight using reflective foil layer
  • ‘Warm roof’ to maximise space

Tech spec

  • 240mm I-beam walls injected with cellulose fibre and with reflective foil airtightness layer (u value 0.15)
  • 450mm I-beam warm roof with 400mm cellulose fibre fill (u value 0.10)
