Hardgate Cotttage, South Slipperfield

This project is the refurbishment and extension of a remote crofters cottage in the Scottish Borders.  There are no mains services near the site and so the house will be completely self sufficient, with wind and solar power, spring water and rainwater harvesting, with foul drains to reed beds.  The building is highly insulated to be passively heated, with backup from a wood fired burner.

Structurally, all components have been selected to achieve an A+ rating from the BRE Green Guide to specification.
