Did you hear the one about the 3 Victorian homes?

… a detached house, a semi and a terrace?? If not, you have the chance to tomorrow, Thurs 24th April, when these 3 homes will open their doors to help you understand how to save energy in your home!

You can book for tours at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm of the detached house on Barnsley Road at   http://sheffield.greenopenhomes.net/266-barnsley-road-open-12-24-april-16-may-10459. The house has many energy-saving features including different kinds of insulation, window solutions and renewable energy.

The work done to make the Victorian semi more cosy and energy efficient is explained in our blog here  – it’s a great example of what can be done from simple DIY to major refurb. There are tours at 12pm, 1.30pm and 3pm bookable here:  http://sheffield.greenopenhomes.net/147-albert-road-open-24-april-and-16-may-10460

And if a terraced house is what you want to see, there is a fine example at http://sheffield.greenopenhomes.net/39-stainton-road-open-24-april-and-5-may-10395. The home has underfloor insulation and internal wall insulation, as well as solar electricity, and there’s a lot to learn about what works in a typical passage-terrace house.    Tours tomorrow at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Please book your visits so your host can put the kettle on and be ready to tell you their story!
