Jilly and Robert Edwards' house is a single storey eco-house built by Clive Stiff seven years ago. They bought the house 5 years ago and have added pv panels and a studio in the garden built by Clive to the same high specification of insulation.

It has two bedrooms, a shower to replace a bath, a large sitting room/dining room/kitchen with two sets of doors leading into a small courtyard garden. The house has a solar thermal panel as well as pv panels and underfloor heating.

There is a wood burning stove which we burn Dr Heat wood blocks as well as wood. The FIT from the pv panels pay the cost of electricity over the year. We do not have gas. There is an electric water heater however we have found the immersion tank sufficient.

There is a sedum roof on the studio and on the small shed/wood storage area. We have two wall mounted water butts which provides water for the garden.

To see this home come for a tour of Montgomery School at 2pm on Saturday 17th May, which will be followed by a visit to Jilly and Robert's house and another home in ExwickWe will be organising a car share so please let us know in advance if you need transport or if you are willing to share your car.
