Day 169 – Turn up the heat!

Though we don’t yet have the electricity to turn it all on, nor the heat pump, come to think of it, we have very much reached the stage of bringing life into the house. Heat, one of my favourite things in the world, will soon embrace the house, and shake off the chill of winter. 

The house is situated next to the river, surrounded by tree’s so by its nature is a cool damp site in winter, and a hot sun trap in the summer. Right now the house is holding all the moisture of the land and until the screed is poured and the heat goes on, that’s only going to get worse! 

There was question as to whether we needed underfloor heating upstairs, but now, having seen how cool the site is at this time of year, I’m very glad we kept it in. The house will be warm and cosy. 

Here are a selection of photos, showing the installation of the underfloor heating tubes. This all took place today.
