A crumbling Edwardian home receives a sustainable renovation and new addition
Sustainability was at the core of this renovation and resulted in the home achieving a 7.9 NatHERS rating for this all electric family home.
The owners of Sol House needed their home to better suit their lifestyle and they also wanted to minimise the amount of energy used to run the home. Old homes can be beautiful, like this Interwar double brick Californian Bungalow, but they can also be dark from small or poorly placed windows, and have insufficient insulation making them either too hot, too cold or draughty. This can result in expensive bills to keep the home well-lit and at a comfortable temperature.
