Planning consent for eco extension
Updated: Jul 6, 2020
Earlier this month we gained planning consent for a new single storey extension to a previously converted threshing barn in North Devon.
The design incorporates strategies for sustainability, aiming to reduce energy consumption during construction and throughout the lifetime of the building. We have decided to use materials with a low embodied energy: the structure will be timber framed, clad with lime rendered wood fibre boards and locally sourced timber cladding. We are also looking to specify insulation levels which are better than the minimum required for building regulations, so as to improve the performance of the building for years to come.
We are looking forward to developing the detailed design as we work towards getting the project on site.
