Natural Materials

Optimising the design of your home helps you to minimise running costs. Low running costs mean low energy usage and therefore reduced carbon emissions during the lifetime of your home. This makes great sense for your pocket and the environment. But we also go further....

Our most popular build system uses timber and hemp products which actually absorb carbon during their growing cycle.
In addition to this carbon lock-in, choosing these materials for your build saves the energy and carbon associated with the manufacture of more intensive alternatives such as masonry.

By this combination of carbon lock-in and appropriate material substitution, your home could save up to 5 tonnes of CO2 before you even move in. That’s the same as nearly 25,000 miles of driving in a modern car.
