My biggest mission throughout this whole house project has been to make it as warm and cosy as possible. We’ve now got blinds on nearly all the windows, we have a fully insulated roof (and can no longer see the roof tiles), we have new radiators in all of the rooms and we have lots of working fireplaces.
It has really transformed the space and we’re so excited that we went for it after going back and forth for so long about whether it was worth it or not. We’re probably going to paint the handle a walnut colour too but other than that it is all set up and ready to use. We got it from The Harrogate Stove Company and the team there have been brilliant. We’re actually excited about the temperature dropping so we have an excuse to use it!
We now just need to do the following to fully insulate this house:
- fix the living room blinds – as the ones in there are useless and provide no insulation
- hang a curtain by the front door to stop the draught coming in
- hang a blind on the top floor by the large window
- put some blinds up in the basement windows
