SIPs Farmhouse

If you’re planning on building a new farmhouse then take the time to view a project we did all the way back in 2012.

The client wanted to upgrade an existing Farmhouse high in the Lake District. Pryce Building decided that the best course of action was to demolish the existing structure and start again on the existing footprint. With it being a very exposed site with no main services this was the best option.

Kirkby Lonsdale is located 1300 feet up in the Lake District and very exposed to the elements. The natural cause to action was to build a highly insulated property. Because of where the site was located we needed the new build to be as water tight as quickly as possible.

SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) were the obvious choice. Because of the quick construction time the SIP structure could be up very quickly meaning the build could be water tight as soon as possible. Structurally Insulated Panels also provide excellent insulation. Visit our website for more information on the benefits of SIPs.

The building is completed with under floor heating and the property is also powered by solar panels located away from the house.

This was a truly great project to be a part of. If you’re interested in building a Farmhouse or a different property please contact us.
