Too late for me I'm afraid !

I got my Powerwall 2 with an EST Interest Free Loan so had to do it at the end of last year so that the pennies would come through in time.

Been watching your posts with interest because it obviously relevant to me now and and as the Powerwall will be installed within the next few weeks what you have been posting is really interesting.

I'm the same as you, if that Gateway had been available I'd have gone for that but never mind I'm sure the 2 will be an interesting learning curve !!

I thought the gateway was an add on to the PW2, is that not the case?

Dont know is the short answer !
Will have to investigate methinks !

In the meantime, cladding is just about completed (will be today) and all windows are in, PV Panels all in and the Thermal ones are in on Tuesday along with the completion of the roofing, looking better by the day !

All roof tiles now on with Solar Panels set in looks a lot neater than on top, and saves tiles !

This coming week will see more progress inside with the ceilings and walls going up, following week plumbers and sparky are in to carry on with the water expected to be turned on the following week.

Are you putting more insulation on top of the SIP panels and then cladding. Why not just use thicker panels -are you going for a even higher level of insulation than available in SIP panel. What thickness of panel did you go for and what was the thinking behind that choice?  Hope you dont mind me asking.

The panels are 140mm thick with a U value of about 1.2W/m^2K which is this House Builders standard kit detail, we didn't ask for any more than that, just the air gap and then the cladding.

   "this House Builders standard kit detail,"

Intrigued by that-does this builder do a lot of SIP panels construction and does he have standard designs/kits ?

1.2W/m^2K sounds pretty good as if i remember correctly the sustainable house requirements were based on 1.6 W/m2 for the whole wall.

Are you sure about that U value, I thought windows were about 1.2 W/m^2K (some down to 0.5) but that SIPs were down around 0.15 or better, some getting down to 0.10 depending on thickness. I assume these are PUR SIPS and not polystryrene.
