The haha house has temporarily lost its scaffold cloak revealing the outline of the composition of volumes waiting to be clad in Blue Lias stone, dark stained larch battens and grey render. The stunning triple glazed windows are in and the building is now weather and air-tight. We have been working with MBC Timber Frame for the superstructure, which includes insulation and air-tightness design and installation. So we can’t take credit for the air-tightness but we’ve achieved 0.7 which together with the super-high insulation levels will ensure this is one comfortable, and very energy efficient, house to live in.

Focus is now turning to the finishing details with external cladding about to start whilst the interiors are beginning to take shape – the beautiful large format porcelain tiles already giving the feeling of being inhabited.
