Maxine moved into this house in 2012 and quickly found that although it had been renovated well, not enough attention had been paid to insulation and draughtproofing. Within the restrictions of the house being listed, further remedial work has been carried out.

She has adopted commonsense and economical measures, such as installing an efficient boiler and good heating controls, together with eliminating draughts and fitting high levels of loft insulation. By carefully tailoring heating to occupation and keeping the thermostat at a reasonable level, energy use is kept very low at about two thirds that of a typical house. Yet the building isn't cold and works well as a comfortable and compact living space.
