oak used to great effect, this striking and unusual design complements the refurbishment of the existing house. Floor to ceiling glazing combined with a cantilevered corner allow for uninterrupted views. This striking and unusual extension was designed for a contemporary addition to an existing house in Cornwall. There was a conscious effort to use a local architect and locally sourced, sustainable materials wherever possible. The client’s priority was to frame the beautiful surroundings while using sustainable materials to reflect their project ethos. A natural solution came in the form of the chestnut glulam timber frame, sourced locally from an FSC certified supplier. For Carpenter Oak, the demands of the design and in particular, the requirement for uninterrupted sea views through the corner of the extension, led us to suggest the use of chestnut glulam as the material of choice. Using glulam enabled the engineer to qualify the cantilever involved, under the sliding oak joinery doors, permitting views across Plymouth Sound. The use of steel pins allows the frame to float above the ground. The extension was part of a larger project that included the refurbishment of the existing house and integration of sustainable technology. A grey water recycling system, photovoltaic panels, improved insulation and replacement glazing all contributed to the clients sustainability goals. Find out more about this Carpenter Oak project.

Pannal Water Tower provided clean water to the nearby village of Kirkby Overblow for three decades before being abandoned when the Harrogate water board extended its supply. Despite having stood as an empty shell for over 50 years, Carol and Majid Nadry were inspired by the tower’s industrial charm and stunning natural location, and bought it at auction with the ambition to turn it into a home for themselves and their youngest daughter. However, as with any conversion of an industrial building into a domestic dwelling, there were some inherent design issues that needed to be considered. Whilst ceiling height wasn’t an issue in the 46 ft tower, the narrowness of its footprint meant that the width of the walls needed to be kept to a minimum in order to maximise the liveable space. This led to the specification of Kingspan Kooltherm K12 Framing Board. Homeowner, Carol Nadry said, “We were concerned that when we came to insulate the tower, we would lose valuable space from the rooms we had created within the structure. The Kingspan Kooltherm range was a lot thinner than other types of insulation, but still offered a high level of thermal performance which would allow us to meet the building regulation requirements.” The Nadrys also constructed a low-level extension for the tower to provide additional living space. To insulate the cavity walled construction of the extension they installed 50 mm Kingspan Kooltherm K8 Cavity Board. Additionally, to avoid the need for wall mounted radiators within the main water tower, underfloor heating was installed on every floor of the building. To help retain the heat in the floor space above, Kingspan Thermafloor TF70 floor insulation was installed beneath the heating pipes on every floor.

renovating the dilapidated cottage they’d recently bought was simply too impractical and expensive to restore, Mark and Sonia Boulton decided that a replacement build was the best route to a bespoke, eco-friendly home. With Mark deciding to take on the role of project manager, the couple worked alongside an architectural designer and chose to commission English Brothers to create the skeleton of their home. The house’s building fabric is a key part of its sustainability credentials, comprising an engineered timber frame insulated with the breathable and thermally-resistant material, hempcrete (which pairs the hemp stem’s woody core with a lime-based binder). Mark and Sonia were particularly impressed by English Brothers’ experience in mixing oak elements with standard panelised timber frame. “Where there would normally be a rolled steel joist for support, we’ve pretty much got oak everywhere,” says Mark. The speed at which everything came together was another big plus for this construction method. “A key advantage of using a factory-manufactured timber frame is how quickly the build takes shape on site,” says Mark. “In fact, it took less than three weeks to assemble.” Once the skeleton was erected, an eight-strong team of tradesmen worked quickly to get the shell watertight and install service ducting into the frame, ready for the hempcrete to be poured. With the walls insulated and ground floor structure in place, the rest of the house soon came together. The couple added a host of renewable tech to maximise energy efficiency, including solar thermal panels, a solar electric array, log boiler, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system and woodburning stove. Thanks in part to the quality service provided by English Brothers, the scheme won the Build It Award for Best Timber Frame Home in 2015.
