I've been out the building game for a few years now and it's time to take up my tools again as circumstances and boredom dictate. I've used the enforced isolation here to start making decisions both large and small about the new project we are embarking on in Feb. One thing I will not be doing is making the large investment into the government recommended (mandated?) use of air or ground source heating. No matter how much they push this over complicated expensive crap I will have nothing to do with it unless forced. I have experience with these systems and they both are much better in theory than practise. If we had access to gas then that would be first on my list but we do not so oil it is....there is something comforting about having 6 or more months of oil on hand!
