The March 2015 Carbon Co-op social at Takk in Manchester, was on the topic of Retrofit Experiences – what is it like to commission, specify and live in a house during whole house retrofit works? How do you stay sane when the roof falls in, where do you go to for some much needed peace?
In a series of presentations, Carbon Co-op members Fiona Nicholls and Gervase Crooke discuss their experiences. Whereas Fiona worked with an architect and contractor – though has ended up carrying out a lot of the work herself – Gervase designed, specified and built his whole house retrofit project from beginning to end.
