Scotframe, full kit manufacturer and supplier, has launched a new range of house styles which aim to blend in with the British countryside.
The collection is designed to protect the rural environment and reduce energy use by introducing what the company calls five star standards of thermal performance and energy efficiency levels.
The new range will feature 22 house types from bungalows to five-bedroom homes, Scotframe says all have been designed to nestle into countryside sites in a harmonious and unobtrusive fashion.
Bob Edwards, Managing Director, commented: “We have taken our enormously successful previous rural collection and reviewed and updated it to reflect the latest planning requirements and thermal performance regulations whilst giving some designs a modern contemporary architectural style.”
The Rural Homes Collection is governed by a strict set of guidelines covering how a home fits into the countryside, its orientation, the right shape and proportions, the use of natural materials and the avoidance of excess embellishments.
The Rural Homes Collection offers a range of thermal performance options including its Val-U-Therm, a type of building panel from which a highly energy efficient house can be quickly and efficiently erected. The panels have the capacity to cut energy costs.
