Our project brief was to help our client, Irene Vedder, create a distinctively styled new home with a number of special ecological features.
Irene comes from Germany, and bright, clean European styling is very evident throughout. In fact much of the design input came from her sister Ulrike who lives in Sweden. We built the house in timber frame, with an attractive mix of self coloured render and vertical timber weatherboarding finished with a traditional Swedish 'Falunpaint' system.
Insulation in the walls is provided by condensed newspaper, and Irene opted for underfloor heating with a woodburner downstairs (by Wendron Stoves) for those cold winter evenings in.
"Phil is a very reliable and thorough builder and he has good people working for him. Whenever I had a request out of the norm, he would try his best to find a solution or come up with an alternative. The house is just as I wanted it to be and the quality of the build is outstanding"Irene Vedder
