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 20 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 and triple glazed windows create a very calm, silent space.
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.
We have now been living in our house for 5 months and it is a revelation - why are all houses not built to this standard?! What's most surprising is the 'stillness' of the house, no drafts, exceptionally quiet and clean controlled air distribution, makes for a very relaxing place to be. Passivehaus is the future of building and the Touchwood team did an excellent job with our beautiful new home. Ben Ribbans, Hampshire
We have been astonished by the performance of the house...with cellulose fibre insulation Installed to test densities of 70 and above. Our son who is a commercial building energy assessor used his thermal imaging camera to check the installation and was unable to find even the smallest area which was not filled over the entire house.

I am glad that they [Grand Design] covered your timber frame so well, such a beautiful example of what can be done with wood - I am so pleased that we chose you for the job and I am more than happy to recommend your services. Peter, Roundhouse, Milton Keynes
