Hands-on Low Energy House – Inverness

Anthony Hadley designed and built his own Low Energy Home in the north of Scotland, adopting many of the principles of passivhaus design.

He carried out most of the construction work himself, including building the structure using the Wallform 438 system, installing the SIPS roofing system and applying the external render.

Client testimonial: “I thought I would bring you up to date on the performance of our super-insulated home up here.

We have had snow since December and the temperature has been as low as -24°C. In fact, until the last few days it has barely risen above freezing at all during the last three months!

Even on the coldest of days, solar gain alone has raised the internal temperature during the daytime and we have only had to light the wood burner for a couple of hours in the evening.

Once again it looks as though we are on track for a heating need of just 1 tonne of wood logs for the year – for a spacious house of 280 sq.m. and with the winter we have experienced, we are more than happy!
