Our Hill House project in Bath is now almost fully watertight and airtight with the last of the triple glazed Passivhaus-certified windows going in. The team will soon be pumping in the recycled newspaper cellulose insulation into the timber-framed walls and roof, making this home comfy both in the hot summer months and the colder winter ones too! We have removed the woodburner as it conflicts with the sustainable values of the house. They also reduce air quality whilst releasing stored carbon into the atmosphere - best to use that stored carbon and lock it away in the walls and let the neighbours breathe easy!
The next jobs are all the nice outside ones whilst the sun is (hopefully!) shining and then back inside to add the finishing touches - including super sustainable bamboo flooring and some lovely bespoke pieces of joinery.
