In the process of buying our first house itís an old farm house not sure when it was built but found a map from 1887 and its shown on there its in need of a lot of work, a complete rewire and re plumb Iíd like to have a wood pellet stove cooker in the kitchen and a log burner in the sitting room is it possible to connect them to feed a thermal store with solar for summer and a gas boiler has a last resort backup?

Yes.  How big is this.

Have you got natural gas supply and do you intend fitting central heating?

Ripping down the ceilings and removing all the old wire and pipeing is a nice place to start.  If you need scaffolding up make sure all outside jobs are done at the same time - roof,solar,insulation,rendering,pointing,painting,windows etc.

Itís just over 3k sq ft with future plans to add double story extension. we want underfloor heating throughout as the current CH system doesnít look good. there is a solid fuel Rayburn that has been converted to oil, this runs a few radiators as some rooms donít have any heating. most rooms have an open fireplace and thereís a gas boiler for the DHW.I think itíll be easier and a better finish to gut it all and start again.
