Building your Sustainable Home

The question here is "Who do we get to build our home, and are they going to build in a sustainable way using sustainale materials and will they incorporate the sustainable ideas we want in an effective way?". This list is merely a few of the builders we are aware of and there is no substitute for robust research into the company you are going to use to build potentially your largest asset.

The Solabode is an affordable Eco Home designed from the ground up for modern living without compromise to comfort or the environment. It includes solar water heating, double-glazing and super insulation levels as standard.

Imagine a home built without harmful treated timber or toxic materials, the Solabode is built with carefully selected natural and recycled materials. Solabode homes are built with our local Douglas Fir timber and several products made from recycled raw materials, such as Wool insulation and Onduline cladding.

The solid walls inside the Solabode, are built using natural sun dried adobe blocks, made with local clay soils. This heavy thermal mass stores radiant heat from the sun to keep the  home warm at night and on cloudy days.

Earth is chosen instead of other materials like concrete, because it has the lowest carbon footprint of all building materials. It has other benefits too, such as regulating humidity levels and neutralising airborne toxins.
