All About Our Eco Homes

eco house design

Here at Exbury Homes, we offer building and construction services, including regular house building, extensions, refurbishment, and – our focus for today – eco homes. Eco homes are created not just with the individual whose home it is in mind, but with the wider world at the heart of its construction, considering the ways it can be built to be both environmentally friendly in terms of the materials used, as well as being energy efficient. Read on to find out more about eco home construction.


The Rise of Eco Homes


Based in Hampshire, we support people throughout the UK to build the home for the future, now. Within the last decade, eco home ownership has continued to increase in demand. At Exbury homes, we commend those who choose to go down this route and envision that eco homes may one day be the standard in home construction.


Examples of Eco Home Construction


One part of building an eco-home involves the materials used to create the structure. Our eco house builders create structures using eco-friendly timbre that has a Super E rating. We are in the privileged position of being able to offer this to our customers due to our excellent working relationship with Canadian Timber-frame specialists, making sure you get the best quality environmentally friendly materials. The timber is also treated in order to prevent dry rot as well as wet rot. Aiming to provide the safest and sturdiest timber foundation, we believe it to be the best on the market with regards to its strength.


The Benefits of Eco Homes


Whilst eco homes are mainly built on the premise that they will lessen the negative impact on the environment, they can have an even more positive impact when it comes to the use of sustainable energy. The benefit of this also means that by being more energy efficient, you will also be able to save more on your utility bills. More examples of how your home could increase its energy efficient include the installation of solar panels, or improved insulation, perhaps adding a green roof with grass or sedum. We can also employ special Passivhaus principles, and can add other touches using breathable materials. As well as grass roofs and sustainably managed timbers, other touches may include wooden framed windows.


Eco Home Designs


As well as working with eco principles in mind, we know the design of your home is also an equally important part of the construction process. Working within your budget and time deadlines, we keep the channels of communication open to ensure you are happy with all the building and construction at each stage of the project delivery. We believe we can provide striking designs, in both modern and traditional styles. See below for how we can begin to discuss the ideas for your perfect eco home, and our eco builders will make your dream a reality.
