Certified !!

We've just heard that the certification of all the units came through yesterday from the PHI in Germany. Obviously really pleased to get this seal of approval, and plaques for the buildings are now on order, (to be fixed with thermally bridge free fixings of course!)

The Wimbish Experience days are going really well, and I understand we are now full until April. The feedback from the tenants has been absolutely wonderful, it's so good to hear them talk about the low fuel bills and comfort of the homes. I know we always knew it, but when a tenant tells you how wonderful they are and that her gas bill for 6 months was just £30, even in the really cold snap we've just had, I think the whole team can allow themselves just a small element of self-satisfaction.

I've put some images here of the finished product, although of course landscaping always takes some time to have an effect.

Our next 14 passivhaus are well underway at Ditchingham and we look forward to a similar result there.
