About the Project

We have refurbished our four bedroom 1960’s end of terrace town house in Central North Oxford to create an ultra-low energy comfortable family home. We have installed a combination of measures to save energy and generate renewable energy plus undertaking some alterations to update the interior and improve the layout. We are Tim Nicholson, Joanne Bowlt and our two boys.
