Working with the QS of the Ebbw Vale prototype Passivhaus homes in Wales, bere:architects and Richard Whidborne have put together a package of materials and suppliers that could help a self builder to construct a super low energy Passivhaus for under £100,000*. All specialist skills and services, including specialist construction of the timber frame, installation of the plumbing, solar hot water, heat recovery and the electrics are accounted for. All the self builder has to provide is the labour to prepare the ground and foundations and the labour to complete elements such as external and internal finishes.
