Thats all done now and we finally have a Completion Certificate !

Now we are in the house we are finding out how all the PV/Tesla kit is working and its pretty interesting

www.stationbrae.uk

Probably won't be adding  much to this thread now as the house is done but aim to keep the website up to date with how its going.

Self Build & Design Magazine want to do another article on us and we have registered on the Green Homes Network like we were before but so far really happy with how its all gone (eventually) and thanks for all the previous comments and advice as its all been a great help.

Lovely job! genuflect I long to be somewhere quiet like that, just soaking up the tranquility.  (Please redirect my house-warming invite to ecogeorge before he starts sending out 'final demand' notices and threatening letters). Grin I'll never get to see the place only the pictures, so post lots please. Grin

You are very thoughtful.
       And considerate Russ, That personal touch, delivered by hand could be a tad problematic because we will have to stay home to be sure to be sure to be sure not to miss you as you deliver the invite. And,, we could not allow you to set off walking and swimming and walking all the way back home without packing you out with a decent breakfast of porridge and tatties before we all head back with you.

Congratulations Russ,

Now don't ever do it again. Relax, unwind and do nothing for the rest of your life.
