This home is unique in taking a staged approach to retrofit. Lorenza and Paul have balanced raising a young child and limited time and money, with their desire to improve their home.

This home is a 1960s mid terrace, 2bed. Lorenza and Paul have been approaching and implementing a staged retrofit since 2009, doing work when they have available funds. The measures they have implemented are making a real change to energy savings (money and carbon), so doing a retrofit over a period of time without an initial large lump sum of money is possible.
