The Giraffe House, a contemporary house in Sleights, Whitby
Mark & Ali Cornforth write: 'We visited the Birmingham Home & Renovation Show, and were looking for Timber frame companies. As soon as we got chatting with Ian we knew that this was the way we were going to go. With the Sips panels the insulation was already there and they seemed much more solid than any timber frame we had seen. What also inspired us to use them was the great feedback we got from other companies who had worked with Sips@Clays.'

INTERESTING FACT: This contemporary design was inspired by the two Atlantic Cedars in the garden with which we have had to work around because of the tree roots. The first floor lounge cantilevers over the Kitchen/breakfast room and has a large curved window overlooking the valley. We also incorporated a floating Conservatory that hovers 3metres out and looks over the beck in the lower garden.
