The 2,799 sq. ft. Adelia show home with its ski chalet design, sleek fittings and furnishings and underfloor heating would not naturally be associated with the words sustainability and environmentally friendly. However, this timber frame Scandia-Hus show home based in West Sussex combines energy efficiency with all the comforts of a stylish, modern home.
According to Government figures the UK self-build market is worth £4bn per annum; however, for most the idea of an eco-friendly self-build home conjures up ideas of seventies sitcom ‘The Good Life’ coupling compost toilets with becoming totally selfsufficient.
Therefore, to actively demonstrate the reliability and potential of renewable systems in a modern self-build home, Vaillant has partnered with Scandia-Hus, the UK’s largest designer and supplier of self-build Swedish energy-saving homes.
