Charred larch-clad home

A charred larch-clad home in the Highlands: A near passive house with charred cladding, pinned to the bedrock on one side and built to fly over the peat bog on the other. This is an off-grid installation with its own generator, battery pack, PV panels, thermal store and Puraflow sewage system direct to the sea. Access was along a 1.6 mile rough, narrow track and all materials had to be brought in by 4x4 vehicles and trailer. Ten kilometres of cladding had to be charred and an in-house method was devised to achieve this. All internal doors, kitchen furniture and bathroom furniture was made in our workshop along with other bespoke joinery products to suit the client’s and architect’s design.
