When looking for our first home, we wanted it to be south facing, with a big garden. A big lounge, for socialising, was also an important factor. In 2006 we moved into a home with aluminium framed double-glazed windows, minimal insulation and an old gas fire with boiler. We are both very passionate about the environment and love that our home is now an expression of this. We sometimes put our ideology before our finances or convenience but are happy about this. Now our utility bills are only £30 a month, yet our home is warm and snug, with a close connection between the house, garden and seasons.
