The host comments:
"I finally decided to replace the Warmcel insulation with foam and use a professional insulation installer and I had composite doors installed. Looking forward to much greater air-tightness. If visitors want to find out about installing PV, I have  April 2015 quotes from 3 PV installers and I'm up to speed on current PV issues and technologies"
