Join interior designer Rowena Vaughan in-conversation with author Roger Hunt about his book ‘Old House Eco Handbook'
How can we make old houses energy efficient without devaluing future sustainability? And how can we do so without compromising their appeal and character?
Old House Eco Handbook is a practical and essential guide to retrofitting for energy efficiency and sustainability. Whether your project is medieval and timber-framed or a Georgian, Victorian, or Edwardian terrace, it can be made more energy efficient and sustainable. Highly illustrated and with a foreword by Kevin McCloud, Old House Eco Handbook includes chapters on the building envelope; roofs and ceilings; windows and doors; walls; floors; paints; energy, air and water; plus, a chapter on retrofit materials.
Old House Eco Handbook, A Practical Guide to Retrofitting for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability by Marianne Suhr and Roger Hunt, is published by White Lion Publishing, 2019 In association with The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB).
