The project

When InstaHaus, a company which enjoys an enviable and wide-reaching reputation in the creation of stunning bespoke, relocatable timber homes, were tasked with designing a timber-framed home destined for Glen Brittle, a remote spot on the Isle of Skye, they had to choose the perfect materials for the climate.

InstaHaus has always used the highest quality materials which are super sustainable, so Norbord were the perfect project partner for them.

The solution

Using Norbord’s SterlingOSB Zero for the walls and roof, CaberFloor P5 for the floors and CaberFix D4 for all the joints, InstaHaus was able to satisfy the customer’s requirements for an environmentally-friendly, sustainable home at an affordable price.

The outcome

Greg Day, co-founder and managing director of InstaHaus, says Norbord products are a perfect fit for the company’s aim to be the most environmentally and sustainable modular housing brand. “We have used Norbord products for a number of years, after originally being recommended them by a merchant, because they are FSC-certified and help us to achieve our eco-friendly end product. Norbord always delivers on quality and value as well as aligning with our environmentally-friendly values”.
