When Julian and his wife came across a rundown bungalow on a beautiful site, surrounded by the rolling Wiltshire countryside, they knew they had found a great place to build the home of their dreams.
“We chose WeberHaus after extensive research and factory visits,” says Julian. “It was clear the company had the best solution and engineering. Not only was that the right judgement, but the entire process has been superbly executed.”
Once the design was finalised, the house was manufactured in WeberHaus’s factory and brought by truck, along with the company’s skilled German construction team, for assembly on site. The shell superstructure took just four days to put up, at which point the house was wind- and watertight. As Julian required a turnkey solution, WeberHaus also undertook the full fit-out and project management.
The end result is a contemporary 385m2 property with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, including a large wetroom and sauna. A double height atrium is at the heart of the house, with a steel and glass bridge linking two elements of the first floor.
The rear of the property incorporates large sliding glass doors, with level thresholds for indoor-outdoor living, which makes the most of the garden views and countryside beyond. Eco features include an air source heat pump, solar thermal, underfloor heating, heat recovery ventilation and rainwater harvesting.
Julian is delighted with the result and has noticed a huge difference between living in a traditional house and his new draught-free, warm and comfortable living environment. “Great engineering, great people, great process, great house,” he says.
