Touchwood Homes

Touchwood Homes is a family run company with three generations worth of knowledge, experience and passion for building high quality sustainable homes.

In the early 1990s we realised the construction industry, like all aspects of modern industry would have to undergo major changes in order to combat climate change by looking at means of energy conservation and reducing carbon emissions. Our first project to integrate the principles of Passivhaus into the design and build of a new home was in 1996, commissioned by a very early adopter to the principles of low energy buildings.

We are committed to providing top quality air tight, super insulated timber frame homes, enabling self-builders to create a home with minimal heating demand – often requiring no fossil fuels to heat. If the design meets the passivhaus standard (quantified by PHPP), then the minimal heating demand can be met via a small heater battery within the MVHR system – eliminating the need for a conventional central heating system – saving installation costs.

All of our homes are bespoke, and our build system is completely versatile – from conventional home shapes to circular houses, and everything in between! Once designed, the complete structure is factory pre-cut by a computer controlled milling machine which allows for a very quick on-site erection, with absolutely no limitations to the design.

During the structural design process, we constantly check our work to ensure we meet the optimum efficiency for your home, in terms of minimising heat loss through the structure, along with the aesthetics and layout for your plot.

Using our build techniques and pre-cut Passivframe structure, we can ensure the frame will be quickly erected, and ultimately providing you an incredibly low energy home.
