'Zero House'

This home in York is stopping the traffic!

With its stunning and striking contemporary looks this house has become something of an attraction for residents of the historic city of York.

This was a self-build project by Mike Hammill, a developer, who project managed the build throughout. I was involved with the construction of the following: the timber frame which was packed with insulation and then clad with Siberian larch and Arpa (Italian cladding wrapped in aluminium foil). The roof which is topped with a gull-wing roof and the home's eco elements including triple-glazed windows from Sweden and super-efficient eco wool insulation which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
