A 7500 L rainwater harvesting system supplies the water for the WC’s, washing machine and outside taps, this reduces water consumption by approximately 50%. A Heat Recovery system prevents the need for extractor fans and trickle vents. The windows, external doors and roof lantern are made from sustainably sourced hardwood with 28mm sealed double glazed units. These features and a high specification of insulation, combine to produce a unique property that is ahead of its time. It is highly economic to run and is built to minimise its impact on the environment.
