Roof insulation completed

After several days hard work Stu and I have managed to finish installing the roof insulation. We took on this job to save some money, but with the time it took, plus our ebay bargain turning out to be not quite so much of a bargain we are only just ahead from what it would have cost us to have the builders complete it. Oh well, you live and learn.
We have also finally decided what hot water service to go with. After much research we have decided to use an Apricus Evacuated tube Solar, with electric boosting. We have gone electric as we are not on town gas and as we are expecting to install solar power hopefully not too far in the future this will be hopefully a better way for us to boost. To help minimise the boosting, we have gone the evacuated tubes which heat up the water more efficiently, and are also having a stand on the roof to maximise heat absorption. The stand has already been installed and it's going to take a bit of getting used to, but it's there for a purpose after all, not to look pretty.

The new stand minus the evacuated tubing

We had another site meeting late last week, just confirming a few things. Plasterer is now set to be started this Thursday, and brickwork to start the following Monday.
