News / New House in Goathland

We are delighted to have received planning approval for a new dwelling in Goathland in the North York Moors National Park and in a conservation area.  The existing house on the site is a tired, 1930s bungalow with concrete tiles and a chalet style exterior an incongruous addition to the village.

The new house will be built in locally quarried herringbone tooled stone with solar generating roof slates. The design incorporates a timber frame filled with hemplime, limecrete floors, un-fired earth blocks for internal walls, composting toilets to minimise water and electricity use.
