Here are a few photos from the first 24hrs of a project we’re working on. What’s different with this one is the ground floor is almost complete after only a day of construction.

Factory-built eco-homes are produced in Germany and then put on a lorry to deliver to a site in the UK. Once here the house takes around 5 days before they are watertight and the keys are handed over the client.

You don’t see that often!

Interesting and beautiful spiral staircase

This staircase is part of a large house renovation project, with a new part double height 2 storey side extension. The project includes a large open plan living area and kitchen at ground floor, with a master bedroom suite above. The project has been specified with high end materials with a semi industrial aesthetic. The project is currently on site and we are glad to say that it is being constructed to an extremely high standard of finish.

Is solar and micro wind generation really worth while?

A question most people ask is whether it’s worth installing solar and micro wind generation. Our answer to this is you always look to reduce your energy use before considering installing any renewable technology. It’s far cheaper and sustainable to reduce your energy demand before looking to supplement it.

However, this is quite an interesting video from the Energy Saving Trust to help with the question.
