    Out of curiousity is there a CSH check sheet available from somewhere? I would like to retrospectively self assess my build just to see how we did. Grand Designs set me off - Norfolk build was CSH 6 because of some meadow planting, WTK! Our SAP just missed A due to lack of gas combi (no gas supply), so think these scoring things are pretty dodgy anyway, but still curious.

    Just assess yourself against the 9 no. categories at P13-15 in the TechGuide linked above.

    Have fun...:wink:

    Thanks Triassic and Daryl. Having read the guide I feel my enthusiasm ebbing away, now I remember why I decided to avoid silly score schemes and just get things as insulated and airtight as I could afford (within the design/planning limitations that I inherited). It would be great to see build quality improve, but I can't see CSH as the path to it, can you??

    We are in the CSH 6 ball park with insulation, but would fail on water management. I have full bore taps and a big bath etc., I save water by just not using them profligately. Old house, with no special fittings at all, we were averaging 90 l/person/day, not far from the 80 required. It is not what you have that counts but what you do with it. My one bath a year will be a glorious affiar!
