The insulated cavity walls are constructed with bricks to match (or as near as possible) the house, the glass in the windows is Planitherm low `e` toughened glass to ensure maximum insulation. The internal walls can either be plastered or left in rustic brick to suit the individual.
The roof can be constructed from either special comfort blue, self cleaning, gas filled toughened glass or a variety of polycarbonate, roof vents are available to be operated remotely, manually or by a sensor.
The internal ring beam cover can be enhanced by the addition of downlighters giving an intimate glow to the interior, they can also be added to the external structure completing the effect. Doors can be bi-folding, French or sliding, all made to the highest standards of security and resilience.
