Fraser voted People’s Expo favourite
September 14 2010
The three bedroom home employs a highly insulated ‘breathing’ envelope using recycled or natural materials from sustainable sources. Constructed of a timber frame structure with Scottish larch cladding and zinc roofing the property has a predicted annual running cost of just £274.
Speaking of the win Malcolm Fraser said: “We are delighted to receive this vote. We had tried to build something familiar to the house-buying public, and to our house builders that pushes forward simple, sustainable design. We are very happy that the public seem to agree.
“Looking round the site, it’s interesting to learn from the other house designs. We’d like to think that we could do even better the next time. We would love to hear from any house builders, or budding house builders out there, who would like to try building with us.”]
The Highland Housing Alliance announced the result as they begin to market 24 of the 52 homes on site for private sale at prices ranging from £230k to £350k.
