Not many young couples would take on to build their new home whilst balancing busy careers and planning a wedding. The BuildWright team couldn’t help with the wedding plans but they did make it possible for the soon-to-wed couple to move into their eco-friendly home less than 6 months after submitting their planning application, and in time for the big day!

The modern appearance really is a true reflection of the cutting-edge technology which has been used to deliver not just a quick and quality concrete-build, but also a sustainable, nZEB compliant home with projected space heating costs of €80/annum.

Choosing the Holly House pre-design layout and putting their own stamp on the interior and exterior Stephen and Rachel have really made this home their own. The design makes excellent use of two full-sized concrete modules that have been placed several meters apart. A link corridor was then formed swiftly on site which also plays host to the entrance hall and utility room with rear entrance.

The process was enjoyable from start to finish and never felt rushed, which is incredible considering such a short turnaround, a testament to all the BuildWright team! We can’t thank you enough for all the help on the build. It did exceed all our expectations. We are delighted in our new home and are proud to welcome friends and family to it.
