Posted By: ecohomeWelcome! I'm not so far away in Frome. The buildings look fascinating, never come across them before.
Posted By: Cav8andrewHi atomicbisf, I am also based in Bath and currently building just outside in Wiltshire. In the longer term is external insulation a possibility (financially or practicably) or would it detract from the period features of the building you admire. I had an old school friend who lived in one in Weston village, although at the time I wasn't aware of its significance, more interested in listening to music and building bikes. Good luck, we all need it !
Posted By: Cav8andrewDoes internal insulation have any issues re. the steel frame being the cold side of the insulation.
Posted By: Cav8andrewatomicbisf, yep, can see where your coming from but you mean to say you haven't got 10 reasonably large scale rooms ?!
Posted By: SteamyTeaAre the radiators on external walls?
Posted By: Viking HouseChange your window glass to better U-value glass to reduce the cold draught falling down off the windows and leave the radiators where they are.Make the drylining airtight and no moist air will reach the steel to condense.Install humidity activated mechanical ventilation to keep the humidity low.How much insulation is in the attic and floor?
