Native helped transform and extend this ugly, poor functioning farmhouse in East Yorkshire into a highly energy efficient, healthy, beautiful home.
Using low carbon, natural materials throughout we retrofitted the original house with wood fibre insulation and installed new high performance windows and doors – this both improved the look and the performance of the house. We also extended the ground floor to create a large kitchen and new annex with two arched topped green roof, straw bale insulated structures… both the original house and extensions were finished with a lime render finish to knit both the old and new together.
The client is really pleased with the look and feel, noting:
“We greatly appreciate your help and the result on the house, which we love living in. We get a great deal of positive comments about the house… even without heating there is very little temperature change in the kitchen between winter and summer. Often the only heat we use is from the small log burner in the annex..!”
