Met up with Nigel the owner of South Downs Eco Homes, at the site of a new build on the South Downs. Not just any new build but a highly efficient eco home built to Passive House (Passiv Haus) standards.
This type of self build is becoming very popular is it is environmentally friendly, extremely energy efficient and airtight.
A Passivhaus uses around 90% less energy for heating than a typical building and 75% less than typical new builds.
Fresh air is introduced via a heat recovery ventilation system (MVHR) which removes the heat from the stale outgoing air which would normally be lost in a leaky conventional build.
The web site is a basic one page design using bootstrap 4, with a contact form, we host the site and manage the domain names.
The plan will be to add more detail and photographs as the build progresses. With regards to photography, I took a few stills on site along with a few drone images, as the new build is in a beautiful location.
