Fred and Sue Dow took on the challenge of knocking down an existing bungalow on a sloping plot in Cornwall and replacing it with a contemporary timber frame home. The local planning department were keen for the design to have an agricultural style, stipulating timber cladding as a condition of the consent. Luckily this aligned with the couple’s own vision for the dwelling.

The new house is situated as high up the slope as possible to make the most of the impressive views and a first floor garage was included after their plans for a separate structure was rejected by the council.

The timber frame was constructed with excellent air tightness levels and large amounts of insulation resulting in a comfortable home with minimal need for heating.
