Yes, we’re moving again- 3 times in 14 months but this time its for the long term. We have put in an offer on a house locally and had it accepted. It’s not a beautiful home yet but I really think it could be one day. It is what I refer to as a project.
We’dreally like to take the opportunity to make it as Eco as possible. I’m thinking solar pv, led lighting where possible, sheeps wool insulation etc. Has anyone tried these? Any other ideas or help. It’s a 1940s local authority built semi on a large plot (so no allotment needed and chickens necessary!). It needs re-roofing we think and has little insulation. Unfortunatley it had new double glazing a couple of years ago but not at the new thickness ( we have a very low budget so can’t justify spending it on this). It needs a new bathroom and has two open fireplaces, one with a defunct back boiler. It has oil-fired central heating which is very expensive to run and there is no gas in the village. Money will be tight to do these things and to live in it afterwards so any budget ideas gratefully received.
Any suggestions welcome. Does anyone have any experience they’d like to share? I think someone wasthinking of putting in solar pv a couple of years ago. Did you do it?
