Continuing from yesterday’s post, Himself and I have begun a “Needs” and “Wish” list for our Dutch home. We have always attempted to live as “green” as possible, but we have an old(-ish) 1930’s home and what’s imaginable had to be weighted up with what’s actually possible to put in place within the budget that we have.

We decided that “future proofing” whilst we had the chance would be a wise idea, so insulation (that less sparkly topic of home renovation) started to make it’s way to the top of the list. A complete clean up of the roof and a handy little “lift” parked onto the street, saw pallet after pallet of 8cm (approx. 2 inch) insulation pads make their way up, and onto the roof. They were installed and weatherproofed, so et voilà, our electricity bill would be happier in future because the house should now be kept cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It would literally pay to start at the top…
