Eco house on Grand Designs

They quite often have remarkable eco-features on Grand Designs.
The one I watched last night on More4 was no exception.

Grand Designs

Season 8 Episode 7 of 7

Bill and Jean Letley, a couple in their seventies, plan a highly contemporary bungalow in their back garden in Maidstone, Kent, complete with underfloor heating and prototype steel foundations. The project would test even the most accomplished workmen, but has been entrusted to their daughter and son-in-law, who have little building experience and will need to make personal sacrifices

It had pile foundations with the heat sinks built in. I thought this was very interesting. There was also heating systems in the roof to capture heat for hot water. I’d love to see a current visit to the house showing how little the place costs to heat!

Fancy watching the episode?
