Summary

Church Row is a charming 200-year-old terraced cottage, where sensible low cost measures have been combined with improved roof insulation to sharply cut energy use and make the home more comfortable.
The attic bedroom was previously cold, but has been stripped back to the rafters, with high performance insulation inserted in between. For conservation reasons timber single glazed windows have been retained, but near-invisible (and cheap) acrylic secondary glazing has halved losses and improved comfort.
The more recent kitchen extension has had its cavity walls filled and the open lounge area now has a wood burning stove to help further cut gas use and create a cosy environment.
Attention to details such as good heating controls and insulation wherever feasible have all helped to pull down usage to less than 50% of what a typical house of this style would use.
