Eco-friendly home unveiled – not shed

The UK’s first affordable, super-eco-friendly home was unveiled in London yesterday.

The flat-pack, timber-frame homes are designed to be carbon zero and meet the government’s strictest energy efficiency code.

Rural Zed, the consortium behind “the homes of the future”, are taking orders for the £150,000, three-bedroom house now and are promising to deliver in as little as three months.

“We took the building of a house back to first principles and designed with energy efficiency at the forefront.”

The two- to five-bedroom homes are produced in a kit form “a bit like assembling a sofa from Ikea”.

The house, which can be built in three weeks, is formed of wooden frames.
