 Tom is a retired electronics engineer and Cambridge Carbon Footprint’s Chair of Trustees. Anne is the Director of The Creativity Partnership and a CCF volunteer. They bought their home in 2001 and feel that they have always been interested in eco renovations; especially as they have both worked with Open Eco Homes and participated in a carbon conversations course.

 

The idea was to make a comfortable home, which suited, with low carbon emissions so the aim of the solid-wall insulation was to help them enjoy comfortable temperatures without a high consumption for the years to come. They were able to adjust and develop their renovation through evolving plans and taking measurements as they made improvements to their home through suppliers and installers as well as through their own DIY efforts.
