8 Wille Cottages, South Street, Lewes BN7 2BX
8 Wille Cottages is a model of what can be done to an old house, taking advantage of renovation works to install some of the more disruptive measures, such as underfloor heating and insulation. The front cavity wall and the loft have also been insulated. Jill has come up with many ingenious methods for very effective reductions, such as magnetic strip secondary double glazing (near invisible), creative use of LED lighting (she can advise on choosing low energy light bulbs too) and simple solutions to cut waste from cooker fans and TV aerial amplifiers. Her commitment has qualified the house as a SuperHome, with emissions reduction greater than 60%.
