'Big' insulation works: EnerPHit conversion incl insulated concrete floor, cavity wall, ext wall & loft insulation

Glazing: Triple Glazing

High spec heating: Vaillant condensing boiler + micro-bore pipes to hot taps to reduce heat-loss from “dead legs.”

Water management: Higher capacity gutters + down-pipes + water butts + soak-aways

John and Pauline say: Our house was a typical 1930s, semi-detached, ex-council house that had had the wrong things done in the wrong order to it since the last tenant bought it. The 1930s was a peak house-building period, so many people could copy what we did or do better. We will help other people who wish to do something similar.
