MANY NEW PASSIV HOUSES IN IRELAND

Hi all and sorry for such infrequent updates.                                                                  We are too busy building new houses is the excuse.. ..

Newsletter #13 is out, and I attach it here for all to see:  Newsletter No 13, May 2018   

 

Don’t forget to look into our web-pages now and then;

www.scanhome.ie 

Here all new houses are shown first. This May we will reach a total of 310 houses built. Most of them in Ireland. Here are a few pictures of the construction of house #307;

35° roof, plastered exterior, slated roof and part of walls to make house appear smaller.              Two balconies and one veranda at the front.                                                                                      Recessed sliding glass sections protected from the sun to prevent over heating. 

House #307;    Draget 244;   Large 2.5 storey house designed by our customer.                                Built by Scandinavian Homes in Salthill, Galway

 

Draget we call a two -storey Hibernia in our internal language.                                                                  This one has a converted attic as well, so we have 3 floors in this roomy family home.

 

TRADITIONAL & HIGH PERFORMANCE

Modern and traditional Irish houses with good long term performance have been built by Scandinavian Homes for many years. This traditional shape is favoured by planning offices all over the west of Ireland. Our solution with barges and maintenance-free STO silicate render works very well.

Traditional barges wide bodied spacious Hibernia passive spec built in Connemara

Traditional barges. Wide bodied spacious Hibernia 126 that is 36 feet wide (11 m) The width gives very high price and energy performance. 3 bedrooms and passive specification, built in Connemara

At design-stage we have to be careful with the window-sizes to avoid overheating when there is no protective overhang of the roof. And the windows must be maintained a little more frequently as they are more exposed to the sun.

Slates, black concrete tiles or modern performance coated sheet metal can be used. Alu-zinc rain-gutters look very well. Windows can be brown stain, white paint or any color in powder-coated aluminium for total maintenance freedom.
