Self Build Magazine

Check out the new edition of Self Build magazine for an interview with Martin about his award-winning house: ‘FMB Energy Efficient House of the Year UK’.
Martin talks about the process of building a Passive House (with no yearly energy bills) & what drove him down the path of energy efficient building.
“I thought I would prefer to pay a bit more on a mortgage than waste the same money on energy bills.”


…”We didnt have to go above and beyond the Passive House requirements…each house is unique, you have to delve into the details and tweak the amount of insulation…for a cost optimal performance.”

“We paid a lot of attention to detail…design and cost analysis with the builder. It was all down to payback times. Anything that wouldn’t pay for itself within five years in terms of energy savings wasn’t going into the house.”
