Little house on the contrary

  • Comment

While fully admiring the little house in Ireland in the issue of the 18 September, I am concerned at two flaws in the detailing of the cross-section. At the junction of the 100 x 100 purlin and the iroko beams there is fresh air as they both meet on an arris, which makes a nonsense of the copious insulation in the roof.

As shown in the detail section through the glazed gable wall, the gap is sealed at the gable with a frameless strip of double-glazing.
