Resources and Support for Natural Self Builders and Self-Self Builders

How can Hartwyn help you?

Whether you are just starting out, or are well on your way; Hartwyn can provide detailed guidance about all stages of your build – from initial design and consultation, through planning and building control, to the actual build.

Along with our industry partners we manage a full turnkey service – Architects, engineers, building inspectors, trades – all working together to realise your dream.

Why are Hartwyn different?

Most of the ‘Eco’ talk concerns the efficient performance of the building, rather than considering the environmental impact of the materials themselves – with Hartwyn you guarantee as low-impact a build as possible

Our buildings combine modern building science and time-tested heritage materials and techniques. We seamlessly integrate cutting edge technologies that lower our energy consumption with a palette of natural materials that have proven their durability over centuries.

Hartwyn builds are:

  • Efficient and economical for you to run. Forever.
  • Designed to suit the specific needs and characteristics of your site
  • Non-toxic to your local environment
  • More sustainable to build and repair than conventional builds
  • A simple and stress-free process that involves you on your own terms
Our advice is ad-hoc and here when you need it. Fill out the form for more information.
