In addition to wall and loft insulation of the whole house, the owners insulated its front extension with insulated dry lining board. A small (60W) off-grid solar 12V system provides energy for LED lighting and battery charging. A range of LED bulbs has replaced fluorescent bulbs throughout the house to suit each particular room and fixture. Randall has done a couple of public talks about his experiences with installing LED lighting both in work and home setting, and is happy to share it. He has produced an information sheet which you can download from this page or collect on the day.

Getting there: If you can, please cycle, walk or use public transport. First Bus Number 1 stops around the corner on Front Street. Parking is on street outside house.
