With construction costs on the rise, the need to minimise avoidable costs elsewhere in the home-building process is even more important. One of the most common pitfalls we see from people investing in new build homes is runaway design costs, which result from designs that must be revised or even completely redrawn because crucial input wasn’t sought early enough.
Currently, construction is going to cost more than usual, so it’s important to get your design right straight away. This is what the Shoebox Model has been developed to address. Created by Sustainable Engineering Ltd, the Shoebox Model is a great way to make Passive House principles a part of the conversation at just the right time.
