Client: Mr J Snelling

Client Verdict: “I have always wanted to build my own home and the simplicity of the Beattie Passive Build System allowed this to become a reality. I attended the Self-Build course at the Beattie Passive Training Academy to learn the skills necessary to construct the vast majority of the build myself, with just the steel works requiring additional contractors. Our new home will provide my family with an enviable living environment with all the benefits that Passivhaus brings.”
