New ICF Home submitted for Planning in Lincolnshire

Planning Permission submitted this month for this new build home in a village in North-East Lincolnshire and the house is to be built using insulated concrete formwork, ICF, to ensure high levels of energy efficiency.

A standing seam metal roofing with self-coloured silicone anti-crack render and narrow rainscreen larch cladding and zinc rainwater goods give a contemporary aesthetic to the traditional building forms of a T-shaped plan, steep duo-pitched roofs and gable ends. Large first floor windows with juliette balconies maximise views to the south and the open pergola structure gives a partially sheltered outdoor entertaining space. The simple pergola design is echoed in the design of the front porch.
