Please be sure you see the Grand Designs on September 17th 2014, Channel 4, which features our Roundhouse project near Milton Keynes.
Touchwood Homes is a family run business with their roots in the building industry going back four generations to the 1920s. In the 1990's we worked on our first home utilising the early principles of passivhaus and quickly saw minimising energy use as the only way forward when building new homes - a vital principle with rising energy costs and concerns over climate change converging.
Since this pioneering project, which featured passivhaus levels of airtightness and a MVHR unit, we have spent the following 18 years continuously refining our build techniques and design details, to now offer our market leading, completely bespoke frames all factory pre-cut to allow very quick onsite erection. The homes feature incredibly high levels of insulation for minimal running costs and a superb internal living environment – the very dense cellulose fibre insulation insulation and triple glazed windows create a very calm, silent space.
We support UK manufacturing and timber production, with our I beams being constructed in the UK, built using as much home grown timber as possible. Our frames are also designed and cut here in the UK, and are insulated using recycled UK materials so further supporting our economy.
Today, we are proud to specialise in market leading bespoke timber frame homes, built to the Passivhaus Standard, and pride ourselves on a top quality, efficient and friendly service.
