Underfloor Heating

18.1.1 – Waiting to Warm Up

We are still waiting for our heating system to arrive. Both the main heating system and the temporary one they were going to install while waiting for the main one have now been delayed.

17.1.1 – Getting the Electricity Connected

We left for holidays with our electricity connection unresolved. We had signed up with a supplier and were waiting for the electricity network to connect us up. It was supposed to take 8 to 10 days, but two weeks later, we’d had no news.

16.0.1 – Transformed

For almost 3 months, bags of render have been sitting in front of the house, and every visit we have wondered whether it would be done. It had been there for so long that I had given up on it happening until after winter when the weather improves.

16.0 – Coloured Render

Two significant changes to the house this visit. The coloured external render has begun and looks great. Inside the final layer of concrete has been poured and is drying.

15.0.1 – The Most Expensive Optional Extra

We finally got to see our underfloor heating this visit. I had spoken to the project manager a week before, so I knew they had started it, but we weren’t sure how far along it would be.

15.0 – Underfloor Heating

Having endured freezing winters in old French apartments, we delight in seeing the underfloor heating pipes laid in the house. Pipes cover the entire floor of the house and will ensure this will be our last cold winter.

14.0.1 – Little to See

As we prepared for this site meeting, there was one thing I wanted to know. Would we get to see the underfloor heating?

13.1.1 – Tread Carefully

The floor inside has been returned to a level surface. All the tubes carrying cables through the house have been covered with a layer of concrete, ready for the insulation and underfloor heating to go on top.
