Another extremely energy- and cost- efficient Hibernia 113 built. This time in Claregalway. House #311 from start in 1991. Spacious 5 bedroom family home with 2 bathrooms, family room, utility room, larder, as well as large open plan living-kitchen-dining area.
Our most energy and price efficient shape is the almost square Hibernia 113 with upstairs conversion. Almost magic – it looks so small and still contains 5 spacious bedrooms, larder, utility and all the rest in an open generous layout.
#309 N115 in Ballina, Co.Mayo.
Only 145mm of Rockwool insulation comes from factory. This saves on transport. Another 70 to 190 mm of insulation is added on site to the inside of the walls. We call this passive and super passive upgrade. (Referring to the 145mm wall used by Scandinavian Homes since 1990 in Ireland)
The doors are locked in the evening of the first day of construction. 3 days later the house -shell is built with felted roof ready.
Articulated trailer filled up with batts of Rockwool
insulation at Scandinavian Homes house factory.
Concrete raft foundation with 280mm of polystyrene insulation under the concrete.
House # 308: passive Nordica 125 with extra high walls, 35 degree roof and a square dormer built near Athboy
