Timber house in Scottish Borders built without nails or glue

Timber house in Scottish Borders built without nails or glue

The new issue of Passive House Plus includes our first ever Brettstapel building, a type of massive timber construction that uses no glues or nails, and that makes use of low grade timber otherwise unsuitable for construction. 

Designed by the Gaia Group, the Brettstapel house in the Scottish borders featured in our new issue is also a certified passive house.
