The Wood Extension has been constructed on a concrete slab, and based on a light framework from local timber, which provides both lightness and strength to the construction.
Starting with the custom design of the extension,precise cutting machinery has yielded, with pinpoint accuracy, the sections and parts of the walls and wood floors.
These walls have been filled with sheep’s wool to provide the insulation and thermal comfort the house needed, and cladding has been added on both sides as a finishing.
