Lichen House – Thermal Upgrading


Located in the South Downs National Park.


The family living in this house were keen to live in a warmer and aesthetically updated home.

The property is a 1960s Colt prefabricated house, and the solution included applying external wood fibre insulation and replacing the metal Crittall windows with high performance double glazed windows.


The original horizontal timber boarding and shingle cladding were removed as part of this process, and the finishes were changed to a rendered ground floor and cedar clad first floor.
