Resource efficient house at Ravenscraig

The Resource Efficient House aims to be a show home for affordable sustainable building

Inside, the house uses a variety of recycled materials in the fixtures and fittings.

The kitchen work surfaces are made from material reprocessed from recycled coffee cups.

Recycled paint is used for the decoration and the kitchen bar stools are made from reclaimed wood from whisky barrels.

The house also uses heating, lighting and water conservation measures to make it more energy efficient and affordable to live in.
