What visitors are saying

"Fascinating and informative, thank you!"

"Excellent visit that made us feel we are not alone in our 'greened' life."

"Useful to see both types of solid wall insulation and underfloor insulation. Difficult to tell how the cost of heating compares to a cavity wall house because they don't use gas for central heating."

"Good to see practical use of available technology."

"A very genuine welcome from the hosts and lots of different strategies and technologies to see and discuss."
