Our second project in Lochbay has been designed to take advantage of the fantastic views over the Waternish peninsula. Designed to Passive House standards, this two-bedroomed house incorporates exceptionally high levels of insulation and airtightness. All heating requirements are provided by the wood burning stove. Solar hot water and an efficient system of whole-house ventilation with heat recovery are also incorporated in the design.
