July 2017

(Writing this post in July, things really are hotting up – 38degC today! But as I said last time, I am playing catch up on a couple of jobs we finished earlier in the year, so this job we finished in April).

The great thing about old houses with thick walls is that the temperature remains fairly stable – cool and fresh in summer and warm in winter. Well that is if you have some form of heating inside, the house will hold that heat for much longer than a modern house. To be fair, even without heating, on a cool day it does actually feel like there is a fire on when you walk through the door – although that first impression soon fades as you realise that stable temperature is only 6degC ! So it was time to get some heat into the house … but first we needed a chimney!
