lifting the existing floor was one part, but we have also stored all of this timer in the garden for future wood-burner kindling

So – the job is already into its fourth week – how time flies… So – it is quite exciting at this time in any project, lots of very apparent and significant work is obvious for all to see, walls removed, floors taken up, the skeleton of the house visible for everyone to see.


we have discovered a neat product called Insumate which we’ll use to support the UF heating on the ground floor

At this point in any build we try and make it quite clear to our clients that this level of change is not to be expected every week, and now the work begins building the aspects of the eco-renovation that will ultimately be invisible – re-arranging the plumbing (all the pipework under the floor for instance – first fix), putting in the electrics that will be hidden (first fix), the insulation under the floor etc..

We have quite a neat idea to use a new product called Insumate – shortlisted by the Architects Journal in 2012 as ‘Product to Watch’ – its made from recycled poly-propolyene and it shortens the time it take to install the necessary support for our underfloor heating – I’ll come back to this in a later blog.

I’ll try and keep this up to date but if you have any questions about any of these products please click the links to learn more – failing that leave a comment and I’ll put you in touch with the really helpful guys at the company.

We are always happy to work with new products, and especially happy to work with companies like this who are open to new ideas and new applications of their products.

setting up the plant room – the heart of the renovation

So – what next this week – we have the bathroom layouts to finalise (we are almost there), the utility room to form, preparing the walls, dealing with the airtightness barrier, the underfloor insulation, the rest of the plumbing and electrics first fix and… the list goes on…

That’s probably enough for right now – but more soon.
