a warm welcome
You’ll notice the difference as soon as you approach a bunnyhome. What have we done to make them so warm and welcoming?
In true Georgian style we’ve embellished our Craft Collection doorways with bespoke porches and trelliswork, handmade by highly-skilled, award-winning craftsmen right here in the South West — in a village just outside the city of Bath.
It makes the entrance to your bunnyhome so much more than just a front door. It adds real class and character that will only become more enhanced over time as the aged zinc metalwork ages further.
British-made in a heritage ‘scoop’ style using traditional, sustainable materials, both our porches and trelliswork are hot dip zinc galvanised to form a corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free finish that will last a lifetime.
doors with a difference
For our Craft Collection homes we wanted a quality, good looking door to keep the outside world at bay when you come to relax in your own home. Along with offering high performance and low maintenance, its durable construction makes it resistant to all that the weather can throw at it.
- Specifically designed to meet the Police Preferred Specification ‘Secure by Design’
- Thermal U-value through the door of 0.6W/m2K, equivalent to approximately four solid timber doors
- Tough enough to resist impact and to minimise the effect of scratches
- Environmentally friendly, highly insulating core
- Exceeds the requirements of the new Building Regulation Approved Document Q
The design of our Craft Collection bunnyhomes is Georgian-inspired, harking back to the nation’s best loved architectural era. But whilst we love the look of the windows from this period, we’ve come a long way since those days when they were constructed from timber frames with single-glazed individual panes of glass with ropes and pulleys. Back then, it was accepted that windows rattled and let in draughts.
We’ve taken the best of Georgian styling and fused it with new technology and modern-day living. Made from high quality PVCu, they’re made to look like they’re constructed from individual panes of glass but it’s in fact one piece of glass, making them stronger, better insulated and much more secure.
Our sash-style windows are A-rated for thermal performance and are manufactured, tested and certified to comply with the requirements of ‘Secure by Design’, the Police Approved standard of security. Being PVCu means they’re also extremely low maintenance compared to traditional timber sash windows that need to be treated and painted regularly to keep them looking their best.
It’s also interesting to know that when we fit our windows, we fit them behind the external brick/block of the building. This is the same method used in areas of very extreme weather, where it helps prevent water ingress.
Butterfly & Bee rose
You’ll find our ‘Butterfly & Bee’ rose growing at your front door on every bunnyhomes Craft Collection development. We do this not just for its scent and prettiness, but to cheer up our lives and improve the wellness of our planet.
Did you know that the likelihood of our bumblebee population surviving has plummeted by nearly a third, due to global warming? With many species of butterflies and bees classed as endangered or vulnerable, we want to do our bit to help with every new bunnyhome we build.
