Willerby launches first residential park home
Willerby is launching into the residential park home market, with a home called the Delamere, featuring stunning architectural designs and awesome interior styling
Drawing on 73 years of experience in building holiday lodges and holiday homes – and also modular houses ranging from bungalows to four-bedroomed houses – and after a year of research, Willerby’s first park home emerged from the factory in April.
There will be two more models, the Hazelwood and the Charnwood, built under a new brand, Park Homes by Willerby.
Willerby invited Park and Holiday Home Inspiration magazine to the factory, near Hull, to take a privileged first look at the Delamere; we were honoured to be the first people outside the company to see the new home.
But first we were introduced to the new construction techniques used and to the ethos behind Willerby’s park home debut.
The floor construction is a fully protected floor cassette, which means that there is greater thermal efficiency and a stronger and long-lasting floor.
The walls are made using Willerby’s Oslo Wall System, which is designed to improve durability as well as enhancing both sound and thermal insulation. Oslo is an eight-layer system that uses breather membrane, rockwool insulation and timber frame between tanalised lath exterior cladding and internal board. The windows have a high thermal efficiency and also a high degree of security with a multi-point locking mechanism. This element of Willerby’s park home design is a component of a new initiative of improvement factors which consumers highlighted during Willerby’s research. Among other components of this initiative are fireplaces with electric log-burner-style ‘fires’, branded appliances, high-end domestic-style sockets and switches, plus refined corner beading eliminating visible fixings.
Willerby’s park homes can be bespoke. Buyers will be able to change colours, fabrics, furniture, even layouts; perhaps making the kitchen larger or creating more space in the study.
Willerby standard kitchens are designed and crafted in-house. However, if you want something extra special, you can upgrade to a Magnet kitchen.
The Delamere is a 50ft x 22 home - the biggest unit that Willerby has ever made.
