designed in 2008, these 2 houses were completed as self-builds by their new owners, and were early examples of ‘code 3’ houses

‘code 3’ was the first step on the road to ‘code 6’ - the ultimate destination of the government’s ‘code for sustainable homes’ which aims for zero-carbon homes by 2016, introduced in 2006 as a welcome long-term policy

‘code 3’ is currently adopted universally in wales, but future adoption depends on evolving government policies [under review in 2014]

those with the vision to adopt ‘code’ houses or, better, passivhaus, should contact us
