Alex says, “We moved into the property about five years ago, inheriting a solid wall property with a vintage back-boiler. Much of the work so far has been related to making the building liveable, although there has been some progress on the low-energy portions of the project and on the veg garden.
In the longer term the building will be retrofitted to the EnerPHit standard. This will reduce energy consumption by around 90% while significantly improving comfort. It will also give me an opportunity to put my professional skills as a low-energy building expert to good use.
The project will be entirely self-built, we’ll be living here through-out, and working on a limited budget so progress will be gradual.”
