Shell party in a Stommel Haus home in Aberdeenshire

September 2016: Shell Open Day and Shell Party in wonderful Stommel Haus home "Heartwood" in Aberdeenshire

 

A lot of people followed our invitation to visit the Open Day in the Stommel Haus home "Heartwood". They were able to see with their own eyes the beauty and high quality of the new house which is built from arctic spruce, recycled glass and recycled newspaper insulation, gypsum and paper and triple glazing windows.

It is already a good tradition that friends, family and neighbours of the owners are invited to a "Shell Party". Such an event is always heart warming for the owners as it is the very first time guests are welcomed in the new, but not yet finished home.

April 2016: Shell party in the house in Norfolk.

 

Typically, a topping out party is held when a new house is built in  Germany. However, a Stommel Haus build is so fast, that there is no time for a topping out party.

 

So, it's already become a nice tradition to hold a "Shell party" for our clients in the UK. When the house is wind- and water tight and before decoration starts, is a good moment to invite friends, new neighbours and people who helped during the build to have a party and wish the new owners all the best for their future and a healthy life in their very special energy efficient new house.
