Colin and Christine approached Touchwood Homes because they had learned that our efficient build process results in nominal day to day running costs, which they liked the idea of, and they also liked the substantial ‘heavy weight’ quality that they experienced in the Touchwood homes that they visited.
Higher Pytte was built using our 300mm thick I beams walls structure, which provided a cavity to contain the cellulose fibre insulation material, and are substantial enough to take the pressure of this insulation material being pumped into this cavity at the amazingly high density of 70kg /m3. The dense, thick, insulating layer around the entire thermal envelope is so substantial that the end product is a substantial home with no space for cold air and damp from outside to permeate into the building.
Completing the build with triple glazed Rationel windows and Touchwood Homes designed, supplied and installed PAUL MVHR system ensures a home with very little running costs, and a very calm, quiet living space.
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.
