Steve Hudson and his wife, Barbara, were searching for a house enabling ease of movement for Steve’s wheelchair. Eventually, the couple found a rural property for demolition to make room for a new, purpose-designed home.
Barbara said: “We built a single storey property with extra wide doorways and rooms large enough for a wheelchair to move around. Aesthetically, we wanted to make the most of the views from each room and ethically, we wanted the build to be environmentally friendly.”
Steve and Barbara specified Earthborn Claypaint for most of the walls within their home. Many of the rooms have their own colour theme; such as Sunday Stroll in the sitting room, which complements the landscape views from the patio doors.
Steve commented: “It’s the texture of Claypaint that’s particularly appealing. The painters were very impressed with Claypaint’s covering power and the ultra matt finish was quite a talking point with them.”
Earthborn paints are made without oils or acrylics, therefore they are virtually VOC free, do not give off any toxic emissions and are much better for the health of building occupants and the environment. It also means there are no strong smells. Steve and Barbara were able to move into their new home a lot sooner than expected, once the painting was completed.
Claypaint is a unique, clay based emulsion made using advanced technology to maximise the natural properties of clay. The result is a high performance, highly breathable paint that is EU Ecolabel approved and available in a standard palette of 72 shades. Bespoke colours can be developed through the nationwide network of Earthborn stockists.
