60’s Bungalow & Outbuildings to Smart Home & Workspaces


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We’ve just bought a 60’s bungalow (luckily mostly asbestos free!) with wooden outbuildings, and beginning the process of converting it into a modern energy saving smart home, and the outbuildings into a design studio and a workshop.

Welcome.

Rather than muck about with smart controls that hide the inherent deficiencies, improve insulation and airtightness/ventilation.

Make the problem small and you then only have a small problem to solve.

Definitely this!

The main thing my smart home does is deal with excess heat (automatic solar shading, automatic stack venting). All the energy saving is achieved via high quality fabric first approach, no smart-controls needed.
