This home dates back to 1830 when it was built to be used as a farmhouse. It was then turned into a development 150 years later when it was separated from its farmland and sold off as a family home. It was left off- grid with no gas supply or fossil fuels on the site and no proper heating! It was then bought with the view that it would be a forever home and a lot of work was required. The aim is to rebuild the home, hugely insulate it (within what is possible with the existing solid walls) and extend it sufficiently to be big enough for what it needs to be, but not to take it out of proportion with its original scale. The home is to use an MVHR system, insulation levels to an EnerPHit standard and airtightness is key to its success. The project is ongoing and the data from the reduction in heat and power use will be made available.
