The house is built in a very attractive setting in undulating nature and surrounded by other private houses of individual design. Relatively high density saves space, but a luxurious feel still surrounds the development. Nowadays this is a normal pattern of build in Sweden.

Pictures show lots of building material is initially crane-lifted in to save manual handling later on. This slows down the procedure, but it saves time and effort later on.Scandinavian Homes special double wall is entirely cold bridge-free with 335mm of Rock-wool insulation. 700mm of blown-in cellulose fiber insulation in the flat attic and insulated concrete foundation gives extraordinary performance.
This house was erected in June 2014 and completely finished and the owners moved in less than 6 months later. All works well as expected of a passive house. The ventilation system was fine-tuned by Scandinavian Homes with our special air-flow metering equipment after the customers had moved in.
