Aussie visit!

Lovely to see cousin Jane (bottom pic on right) and Bibby and to meet Sharnee and Travis.... We had a look round the inside rather quickly as the flowscreed had us leaving slight footprints on the surface..MG renewables plumbers are there sorting out the pump and water tanks.  Things are really moving on now.

Floor in the link

 The floor had already gone in to most of the house by 9.30am.  We hung about to see it happening....

Exciting day

Well, at last, the floor screed went down yesterday.....It was literally piped in and was amazing to watch......

Ground source heating pipes are in!

All ready for the flow screed (finished floor) tomorrow!  Things are really moving now.... The 600 metres of ground piping were put in 1 metre underground by Dick Baines and his boys some time ago.  They will transfer the heat from the ground into the pipes under the floor in the barn to provide heating and the hot water.  .  The idea is that for every unit of electricity used to pump the heat, 3-4 units of heat will be produced making it an efficient way to heat the building......we will see.  Martin Dowd and his team at MG Renewables have waited a long time for this to happen.  The 200 litre cylinder is just waiting to be connected.
