Come and hear Patrick Hannay of Abergavenny Transition Town interview interview Catherine Roberts and Steven Harris on the last ten years of building and living in their award winning zero carbon family home, and then take a tour. What does zero carbon mean? Does living in such a home involve a new lifestyle or is it family life as usual? One the Orchard was designed by resident architects, with productive garden and biomass coppice. Features include super insulated thermally massive construction, lime render and plaster, south facing sunspace, wind assisted heat exchange ventilation, solar thermal and solar electric (PV) panels, smart IoT heat management system, biomass boiler stove and rainwater harvesting. For the last six years the house has been fully heat and power monitored as part of an ongoing field trial.
