Wrap Up !

These are the Before pictures...our home is being wrapped...should this be  "outsulated" rather than "insulated" ??

 The front garden is being used as a yard for our block of houses
 They're working round the older half of the village , built 1930s onwards, pre-fabricated houses with a 20 year expected life.....metal frame,single skin brick...
 Now they're using money that central government takes from power companies and Scottish government's money from Europe to do all sorts of insulation. We do have to pay, but luckily only a tenth of the cost.
I don't envy them working in this weather. At least we aren't having hurricanes or tornadoes, thankfully. We just get the windy and wet tail end of each one after it makes its way around the ocean.
The scaffolders are here today, but all our insulating, rendering and harling was supposed to have been finished mid August...there are some jobs that the rain holds back.

I'm looking forward to even smaller bills this Winter as well as feeling warm!

Yay you...sounds like a bit of a grueling time for a while, then some nice warm walls in the winter.

What wise use of funding, you will be snug and have lower bills and your house will look pretty too! hope it doesn't cause too much disruption and dust.
