Passive Housing, or Energy Efficient Housing are now all the rage, and Eco Villages will be popping up all over the place.
To gain the publics trust, there needs to be stringent guidelines on planning, but more importantly the understanding of what truly is an eco house.
Log Cabins LV has been in the timber building industry for more years than we care to remember, we manufacture and erect timber frame buildings mainly in Norway, where drastic freezing winters are a norm, we understand about energy efficiency, what heating systems work in a passive structure, and what don’t!
We also understand that something’s work, and others do not.
Our years of experience, and our understanding of timber frame technology, plus our very highly skilled architects, who are completely versed in passive, energy efficient housing, would not make the silly mistakes that are listed here in this daily mail article.
Sadly, it is very easy to believe in Kevin Mc Cloud as he is seen as an authority on such matters as passive and energy efficient housing, but I would like to point out that he is based in the UK, where timber frame technology is seriously behind the times, brick and block is seen as a true investment, but to be passive, eco, block is not the build type!
Yet, using or even offering gas in a newly built energy efficient house, is somewhat (crazy), and lazy!
An eco house should be almost air tight, if not airtight, the amount of moisture omitted from the house hold use, should be dealt with by the air recuperation system, this would stop damp, but knowing UK house builders, these pathetic eco houses are no doubt damp from the very core of the stud work!
Kevin Mc Cloud is not an Architect; he does not have any qualifications on Passive Housing, or Eco Builds.
He is very much using his MBE and his presence on the UK TV to win support and gain financially on building projects. HAB housing!!!
He is not challenging anyone; he is just earning himself a large bank account!
Any man that makes a TV program, where he cuts an old beautiful oak and makes a shed out of it, especially an Oak Tree! Well!!!! Shame on you Mc Cloud.
I challenge Kevin McCloud to search for an industry that needs a shake up and do a program on offering solutions to that industry that truly benefits the population, and not his own pocket! If you need help Kevin….I know one!!!!
