Harold welcomes you to his converted 1930's bungalow to passive house standard - DIY.
It started as an ordinary 1930's bungalow but suitable for conversion due to construction, orientation and aspect. Massive external insulation, roof insulation, floor insulation. 8Kw solar PV panels. Solar hot water heating (homemade adsorber.) Electric car. Heat store/conservatory. Insulated window & door shutters. Wood burning stove. Vegetable garden. Coppicing. LED lights. Sun tube. Part earth shielded.
This project was completed some time ago, this means I have had time to asses what works and what doesn't and can reveal snags and actual results.
