low energy


This new build low energy home is to be located on the periphery of the historical conservation village of Fintry, near Stirling. The site is a large south facing plot with amazing views of the Finry Hills. This 1.5 storey house will enjoy a semi-rural setting and will feature a natural slate roof, white render and timber cladding. Large windows and rooflights coupled with five pitched roof dormers will result in a home that is spacious, full of natural light with the primary spaces benefiting from large amounts of solar gain.

An excellent thermal envelope coupled with solar thermal panels and a ground source heat pump will guarantee this home is comfortable whilst reducing housold energy bills.
