  • a solar water heating system
  • wood-burning stoves
  • efficient oil-fired condensing boiler with zone-controlled underfloor heating
  • light pipes bringing natural light into dark areas

Other features for sustainable living include: rainwater harvesting; a section of living (sedum) roof; handmade, reclaimed clay bricks and roof tiles; and clay paints.
