Passivhaus progress update...



The timber frame only took a matter of days to erect, even with the wintery weather at the time.

This meant that very quickly the form and spaces of the house took shape, and the contractor could focus on weather-proofing the frame to allow internal work to process quickly.

The green finish to the timber frame is a Smartply 'PROPASSIV' product- a specially treated OSB board which provides excellent air tightness performance without the need for more delicate membranes, the joints between the board were taped with a passiv tape, providing a continuous air-tight surface.  As you can see, the timber frame arriced with all openings formed for the doors, windows and roof lights.
