Boasting a timber frame with optimal thermal and airtightness properties

Cedar Barn

Cedar Barn is a rustic two-bedroom property in Leicestershire, home to a couple who had been planning their dream home for years before finding the ideal plot. Boasting a timber frame with optimal thermal and airtightness properties, Cedar Barn is well-insulated and requires only minimal heating during winter months, vastly reducing the self-builders’ carbon emissions and heating costs.

The couple had always wanted to buy a home in Barsby so that they could live near family. Challenges arose as houses in the area were not within budget and the land had never been available for self-builders. Finding the right plot for a self-build home is always difficult, but a 150m2 prime piece of land on the self-builders’ family farm presented an opportunity that was not to be missed. The reserved location offers expansive views over the open countryside, surrounded by wider Leicestershire, an ideal setting for the countryside Cedar Barn home.

At this point, the self-builders set about their search for a sustainable, environmentally conscious self-build specialist. Daunted by the construction knowledge required to build their own home, they were attracted to the family-run, supportive nature of Frame Technologies, as well as the hands-on one-stop-shop package that we provide.
