We have designed The Pine as 82 square meters of internal floor space with a 30 square meter covered terrace, to be either a super one bedroom home or a 2 bedroom option. There are several construction options which are to be discussed to ensure satisfaction of individual requirements. The footprint can also be changed.
The large living area has a ceiling up to the well insulated roof. By installing an 18Kw wood burner with a high exposed chimney there will be sufficient heat for the entire home. Suitable insulation can be installed to ensure that the high summer external heat is cooled inside by the building obviating the need for expensive air conditioning.
The plan is to have a group of five of these properties together with a shared swimming pool but one may choose to use the plan elsewhere.
“The Pine” is intended as an 80 M2 property that can have either one or two bedrooms and a brilliant 30 M2 covered terrace.
The ceiling of the large living area reaches to the beamed roof providing a great feeling of spaciousness. The design is so thermally efficient that with heated towel rails in the bathrooms and just an 8 Kw wood burner one will enjoy economical winter warmth. That same thermal efficiency will provide a cool refuge during the searing summer heat that frequently reaches 40 degrees.
Whilst one is free to build this home on any plot we are considering a group of 5 with a shared swimming pool on a large south facing area. There will be more information later.
