The Greening of our big Grey House

To start greening -up a house with empty walls is a daunting process but after many years of work it's starting to bring results. The original [now almost 100 years old] house had empty cavities in the walls with no insulation at all and those drafty old windows and doors didn't help either. The house now boasts an airtight warm frame with high insulation walls, windows and doors.

We now have an efficient house but it doesn't end there. Recycling and composting cut down our garbage output by 90%. Our guest hospitality room has its' own blue box and while guests aren't required to use it, most happily do.
