Brae Spinney is a house of firsts — the Passivhaus-certified house is the first kit home of its kind completed by Caber House. It’s also the first time owner Paula Harte has built a house. 

Pre-designed to the Passivhaus standard by Colin Potter of Dunoon-based Architeco, the result is a highly energy efficient and elegantly tailored self build that sits seamlessly within its leafy setting close to a town centre.
