    • www.ecolivinguk.com Low Energy New Build: Assessing the running costs of a low energy new build 3 years on © Ecoliving Ltd Frank McElroy, Regional Director, Ecolivingmicro-renewable solutions for a sustainable future
    • www.ecolivinguk.comProject Background Clients bought a small farm, East Cambusmoon, within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. The existing Victorian farmhouse was in a poor state and was demolished. Thomas Robinson Architects designed a four bedroom family home to replace the existing one and half storey farmhouse. It had to be traditional in external form and contemporary in internal feel and had to sit comfortably in the landscape of the National Park and with the other © Ecoliving Ltd neighbouring farm buildings.  The Challenge was minimizing energy consumption while maximizing the views north to Ben Lomond.micro-renewable solutions for a sustainable future
