This was the second time that our customer had built his own house. This time a spacious 200m2 five bedroomed chalet bungalow on a corner plot in this picturesque Essex village.
The site housed an old swimming pool which had been filled in by the previous owners. This required a significant foundation design to overcome. The Excel timber frame package was erected in two weeks in August after an 8 week design period where we worked closely with the client and his architects.
The package benfited from factory fitted high performance insulation and underfloor heating from Wavin Modular Wood UFH System - see page 14 of this Wavin product guide.
