Stepping into Heather and Mike’s house you are immediately aware of just how quiet it is. Situated along the A27, noise reduction is a key home comfort and with the installed triple glazing, you are also getting excellent insulation. If you are thinking of installing glazing visit this home to learn more.
But there is so much more here, solar PV and solar thermal installed on the roof helping to keep the energy and water bills low. This has encouraged a shift in the clothes washing and dish washer cycles to during the day when the solar is in full flight. Add in the grey water recycling and you can see just how much has been done here to live consciously and carefully. They use buckets to collect shower water and washing up water to use for their toilet flushes which has resulted in a low £10 a month water bill.
Step outside and it’s a haven of fruit trees, soft fruit bushes, plants able to find their own place and grow accordingly and a beautiful tree in the centre of the garden offering shade and presence.
And as an added attraction there is a model railway system that just has to be seen along with an unusual themed downstairs loo! Everything with Mike’s and Heather’s life is centred around the ‘resistance to following fashion and proud to be retro’, enjoy.
