Heb Homes, Craobh Haven

Located in the purpose-built village and sailing port of Craobh Haven, on the west coast of Argyll & Bute, this contemporary take on the traditional Scottish longhouse enjoys stunning views across the Craobh Marina.  Built using SIPs to maximise thermal efficiency, the house has a very low energy demand despite its location on the exposed Scottish coast.

The home's exposed location, facing out onto Loch Shuna, meant that the chosen construction method needed to be made wind and watertight extremely quickly.  The client specified a preference for SIPs from the start, and this proved the ideal choice as off-site manufacture allowed for rapid on-site construction and a highly thermally efficient shell in the finished home.

What The Client Said

"The kit was superb and I would highly recommend JML SIPs and have done to many people who have been to view my property".


JML SIPs designed and supplied the custom SIPs kit for this project, which was then erected by the main contractor.  This was the main contractor's first SIPs kit experience and they were impressed by the ease and speed of erection and have gone on to use JML's SIPs system again.  They were supported by JML SIPs throughout the process to ensure the build was smoothly run and problem-free.
