 We moved into our 3-storey Victorian house in 1997. It is an excellent location and a good shape and size for us. However we rapidly discovered it was cold and draughty and cost a fortune to heat. Ten years later having replaced all the windows with modern glazing and also the lounge and dining room fireplaces, the coldest part of the house was the enormous old shop-front window. It wasn't practical, or particularly desirable, to keep it, so we commissioned an architect to design something more cosy. One thing led to another and our house is now warmer and uses considerably less energy (and will hopefully retain its value better than it would have done).
