Timber-Clad Home on a Sloping Plot Plans

9th June 2017

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.

Fact file: 3-bed timber-clad home on a sloping plot
  • LocationCornwall
  • ProjectSelf-build
  • House size174m2
  • Bedrooms3

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.
