Energy-efficiency is our main emphasis and here our Swedish building methods and traditions play a large role. High levels of insulation and an airtight building envelope in conjunction with ventilation heat-recovery systems and triple glazed low-emission-argon filled glass are important factors.

We also consider durability and life length important. Houses should last several hundreds of years.

Since 2006 most houses are built to “Passive standard“. Our factory is situated in Lysekil, a small town on the Swedish west-coast. Our modular wall-sections are manufactured here, in a dry and clean environment. Our system allows up to 200m² houses to be shipped on one single trailer.

On site we always build the insulated foundation and erect the shell complete with windows, doors and felted roof.  Close to our Galway base, depending on how busy we are, we can take the build to completion

-Healthy and sustainable. Simple natural materials and modern components taking advantage of the latest Swedish research. We avoid complex composite materials that are full of glues and other chemicals in order to create healthy and sustainable houses.
-Any layout possible. Each house is different, developed and designed in partnership with you. We help and advise with design and orientation to suit the local climate and solar conditions.

-Ventilated external walls keep the dampness away from the structure. Rendered fiber-silicate board is rendered with silicate colored-through plaster system. Alternatively timber cladding can be used.
