Event description

Description

Twice a year Passivhaus buildings worldwide open their doors, welcoming visitors to experience Passivhaus first hand, and discover all about the participating projects. This summer, the International Passivhaus Open Days take place 28-30th June. The mid-year event offers the chance to experience the benefits of Passivhaus buildings in a different season to the event in November.

Knockboy Barn is a rural family passivhaus set in a new woodland designed to respect its context while maximising the opportunities of the site in terms of views and shelter. The house will be constructed using a simple timber frame, clad with larch and fibre cement panels with a green roof to allow it to blend into the rolling rural landscape. Heating will be provided by heat pump supplying a post heater in the MHRV system as well as towel rails in the bathrooms.

Construction commenced May 2019, timber frame to be erected early June 2019. By the time of the visit you should be able to see the structure, insulation and membranes.

We will present the principles of passivhaus design and provide information on the design of our house to allow you to see how it will be constructed over the coming months.

We are running 4 slots over the 2 days so please book the appropriate ticket.


UPDATE 22.06.19 DUE TO SOME TECHNICAL DELAY THE TIMBER FRAME WILL NOT BE DELIVERED AND ERECTED IN TIME FOR THE OPEN DAY. WE ARE STILL HAPPY TO MEET PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT PASSIVHAUS BUT THERE WON"T BE AS MUCH TO LOOK AT AS WE HAD HOPED.
