Listed buildings landlord, United Kingdom
The loving restoration took almost a year and a half and was careful to keep as much of the original character as still remained, while updating the house for modern 21st Century sustainable living. The whole house is heavily insulated; the house and water is heated by a ground-source heat pump; well water is used for the toilets and our own logs are used on the fire and in the wood-burning stoves.

This project is being supported by Ademe (the French environment and energy management agency) and the Ile-de-France regional authority.
