Our house just has 200mm of insulation in the floor, because our budget was exhausted. Now in the winter period a lot of energy is necessary to heat up the house, and the climate gets a little humid. So it was quite obvious that insulation would be the next necessary […]

The house got painted.  Only the doors and windows need some extra work. EPDM got established on the roof, and the windows are inserted. Soon ready for moving in! This picture was made by the owner of the house.

Today it was finally possible to try our underfloor heating system, because we got an electrical heating boiler attached. It was a long process to figure out which kind of heating device we will use, also due to our economics. So we decided actually to get a heat pump. But […]

Our sustainable house has a compost toilette.  A great decision. It is not smelly at all, and saving a lot of dirt water. For the rest of the dirt water, we need to establish sewage. As you can see on the picture, our earth is really full of clay. To […]

A round window is a strong design element for a house. Since it is also very expensive, we bought this one used on ebay. Now we painted it and finally installed it. The frame for the window was made with a laser cutter.
