We have come a long way in terms of knowledge, appearance, energy performance and are nearing completion but already know that it was worth it.
Sarah & Lloyd bought a 1965 detached dormer bungalow in need of an upgrade but did not realise how much of an upgrade was required to make it comfortably habitable. After several false starts and amidst a lot of research, they took control; decided what they wanted and joined the Manchester Carbon Co-op. Sarah and Lloyd moved in during the latter construction phase.
