See what's involved in a full retrofit; compromises made and lessons learnt.

Retrofit of 1920 former  council house, to fit with other houses on estate. Having lived there for 40 years a lot needed upgrading, and was in fortunate position to afford to do renovation all at once. Tried to incorporate as much energy saving and renewables as possible, no fracking gas. Had attended a number of Carbon Co-op trainings, visits and meetings, so was aware of most of the issues involved. Future proofed so could live downstairs and share accommodation. Retained some original features
