The Forge | Tregiffian | Sennen | Cornwall

The brief for this house was to remove an existing single storey damp and otherwise insubstantial dwelling and to replace it with a high quality, low energy 2 bedroom house with open plan kitchen, dining and living areas as well as a study. Part self built by the client and owner the replacement was designed and built in timber frame with high levels of insulation as well as being air-tight. The building is heated via an Air Source Heat pump combined with underfloor heating and a wood burner.
