SWAD Group invited to Eco Home in Somerset – 12th July 2012

July 12, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Somerset, Wiltshire, Avon and Dorset Group have been invited to view and discuss the design & construction of The Cube at Keepers Cottage, Hardington, Frome BA11 2RE.

RSVP essential – debbie@aecb.net

“The existing single garage was too small for what has become a collection of classic cars, and when all the children come home with their fanilies more space is needed. Open to the wind and rain that dive down the valley from the West, and in the grounds of a Listed fortified hunting lodge, this building needed to be compact, very well protected, and warm. This is a timber super insulated building which heats up quickly, used less energy to build, and very little energy to keep warm.”

The evening will be hosted by Nigel Humphrey of MAS Architectural and Environmental Consultants, along with input from the owner / client Jeremy Walwin.

Thursday 12th July 2012 @ 7.00pm
