House No 284, is a modified Skagerack 265 in semi-traditional style. Fully passive energy specification. A traditional large house built in keeping with an established neighbourhood in Galway. Maintenance free wooden windows with aluminum external cover.
Large two-storey extension towards the garden featuring master bedrooms and large family room. External walls completely maintenance free in grey coloured silicate-render. Traditional looking large house with grey-rendered exterior. External architraves and heavy window-sill will be white to create a contrast.
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.
