Frisby Lakes Lodge Park is an award-winning East Midlands site with a plan to develop 59 luxurious Finnish Log lodges made from 100% renewable material. Situated in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside with lodges overlooking a large fishing lake, this stunning park has a lot to offer for those wishing to move to an upcoming, safe-haven location for the over 45s including beautiful electric-operated FAKRO roof windows.
These timber-built Finnish Log lodges use materials sourced from managed forests and other controlled sources, which are crucial to sustainability and are FSC® certified. FAKRO roof windows add to the eco credentials as they use sheep’s wool for insulation within the frame helping create a perfectly ecological home while keeping expenses to a minimum.
The lodges are surrounded by the ongoing environmental work, instigated by the site owners, which has resulted in a positive increase in wildlife numbers in the area. With the evergrowing nature reserve in Frisby Lakes, a Kingfisher point is currently being developed enabling the residents to admire an array of birds flying overhead.
Installed into the luxury lodges are FAKRO’s FTW-V P2 Z-Wave roof windows with ARF Blackout Z-Wave blinds that are controlled remotely. At the flick of a switch, residents are able to specify the airflow through the room as well as automating the operation of the blinds, giving them the best of both worlds in one window system!
Prospective residents can choose the exact positions of their beautiful FAKRO Z-Wave roof windows, in the planning stage well before building has begun, allowing them to decide if they’d like to be woken with the sun from the east or watch it set again in the west (or both!).
Obviously natural light has a proven benefit to healthy living, and both physical and mental well-being. When looking for the perfect way to allow this in their lodges Frisby Lakes looked at many roof windows on the market, settling on FAKRO because of the benefits of their systems and for the excellent customer service they expect from a trusted supplier.
In resident and site owner, Rob Sheridan’s lodge pictured above, a large number of 55cm x 118cm windows were cleverly positioned to make the most of his and his wife Sharon’s remarkable open-plan kitchen/diner area.
By doing this they’re sure to enjoy living within the natural surroundings, wildlife and sunny skies they adore.
