This joint project between Ethos Homes and Character Builders resulted in a high performance home built in a Character style.

The home incorporates the five key features Ethos Homes builds are renowned for: a high performance foundation, increased wall depth, recessed thermally broken joinery, airtight thermal envelope and a ventilation system. The frames were partly panelised with the rigid barrier fixed in the factory and hi-abed into place, ensuring a weathertight lockable home in the shortest time possible. Ethos built the home to airtight when Character Builders took over to complete the look.

The benefits of an Ethos high performance home include low energy use, high quality indoor air, thermal comfort, operational savings and sustainability.
