This modern home was carried out during the autumn of 2015 making use of modern and traditional materials to achieve a high specification, efficient and environmentally friendly finished home.
This bespoke timber frame home was specified to maximise the thermal efficiency of timber over brick structures. The discerning owners wanted the dwelling to be fully breathable and as environmentally friendly as possible and for this the McErlean plastering team needed to utilise a range of materials and their properties.
Our team used stainless steel mesh covered with 3 coats of round tower lime mixed on site to achieve the desired result for the customer making the most of the vapour permeability of lime renders and their flexible nature to accommodate the movement expected from a timber frame structure such as this.
Carrying on from the Resource Efficient Home in Scotland this is a a perfect showcase for how the combination of modern and traditional methods and materials can be used to create a new standard of home building.
