K-Coon from KTF:
K-Coon is without doubt the most cost-effective and
environmentally friendly way to add space and value
to your home. Add to this the fact that k-coon is
architecturally designed by one of Ireland's leading
low energy specialist architectural practices, and you
can be confident that your extended family home
will provide you with a modern and comfortable
The k-coon system may seem complex, but is simple
in its installation. In fact it is so simple that you can
continue to live in your home with the minimum of
interruptions. The bolt-on system has ready-made
heating built-in, so that the need to dig up floors is
The Benefits of k-coon include:
- Planning Exempt
k-coon space and dimensions are designed to fall within the
Irish planning extension rules relating to extensions at the rear
of houses. While this will be true for most cases, a survey of
your home will be required to verify this.
- Architecturally Designed
k-coon is designed by one of the leading low energy
architectural practices in Ireland. Martin Mulligan & Associates
was given the brief to design a modern living space that could
extend and enhance the quality of living space in the home.
- Minimum Interruption
k-coon is a bolt on system and therefore every effort has been
made to ensure that you can continue living in your home with
minimum interruption. It also has its own heating system so
there is no requirement for digging up floors in the existing
home to divert pipes.
- Modern Living Space
k-coon does not copy the existing building that it is extending
but complements it. It does this with the use of beautiful
modern design and building materials.
- Speed of build
k-coon has a build time of around 4 weeks. While this is the
normal build time for k-coon certain cases can take shorter or
- Lots of Light
k-coon, since its inception has always included the use
of light in the various designs available. Light is very
important in a living space and should be optimised
where possible. k-coon ensures that this happens in your
new living space.
- Energy Efficient, Easy to Heat
k-coon is designed to retain whatever heat is generated inside
and also to maximise solar gain. The U-Value off the wall is (.16),
Ceiling (.2) and floor (.11). The glazing including the frame has a
combined U-value of (1.5). This all adds up to ensuring k-coon is
easy to heat and comfortable to live in.
- Low Carbon Foot Print
k-coon uses renewable materials where possible. Most of the
structure is timber which is a renewable resource and wood is
ecologically friendly. Timber absorbs CO2 as it grows and releases
oxygen! The carbon stored in the timber will not be released
even when a tree has been harvested and processed into timber
products. We also limit the use of concrete which creates a lot of
CO2 during the manufacturing process
- High Quality
k-coon is manufactured in a new purpose built manufacturing facility. Quality
control is maintained from start to finish and this includes whatever works
are needed on site.
- Choice of Finish and Colour
k-coon offers a choice of stone types, cedar cladding and render colours.
You can also choose from a range of door and window frame colours. This
means you have the opportunity to put your own personnel stamp on your
new extended living space.
- Exterior Decking and Architectural Trellis
k-coon is not just a beautiful internal living space but also helps to take
your garden into every day living. We do this by bridging the divide with a
decking area that includes an Architectural Trellis. You can use this space in
a number of different ways thus ensuring that your new extension will be a
great addition in summer and winter.
