The main feature of this building is an innovative 'gable warmer' constructed with thermafleece wool insulation covered with a breathable membrance and a cladding of stained fire retardant treated feather-edged timber boarding, a traditional local building material. This was all done by the owner and has made his home much cosier and reduced his heating bills.
