naked house

A naked house is a fully pre-fabricated timber frame functioning Passivhaus.

 

Your naked house includes the following:

  • PHPP calculations and design support from our in-house team
  • A pre-fabricated woodfibre insulated timber frame panel construction
  • A guarantee of thermal performance to the designed standard
  • A guarantee of airtightness to Passivhaus standard
  • Triple glazed timber or timber/aluminium composite windows
  • An optimised MVHR, heating/HW system installed and commissioned
  • Pre-installed first fix plumbing and ducting for electrical circuits
  • Internal plasterboard finish ready for skim and decoration
  • External cladding, brick slips or woodfibre board ready to render

Sounds expensive, but it's not! Our low-energy building experience combined with our unique supply chain and pre-fabrication system delivers excellent value.

 

The local builder will be required to provide foundations to a layout design provided by us, internal and external second fixes, fit out and decoration. The main building fabric is provided by us as a ‘naked house’, which is a fully functioning insulated, airtight and watertight Passivhaus. Due to the fact that the naked house is pre-fabricated in tightly controlled factory conditions, speed of construction on site is very fast and the opportunity for damage or errors on site is almost completely eliminated and costly on-site labour time is minimised.
