Studio in progress
As promised in an earlier post...here is the studio without roof or insulation, both which are now on, making it a somewhat waterproof space. We are just waiting on the cafe doors and windows and then it will be at 'lockup'. Just in time for rains and the baby! Looking forward to the internal fitout and some lovely sunny winter moments which is what it was designed for, well alongside the primary function of acting as a 'stand' for a full roof bank of PV solar cells to make our home completely self sufficient in electrical energy. Whoohoo!! At the moment we are paying an arm and a leg for our wind generated electricity which we purchase from Origin. When the cells are connected to the grid we will have the option to sell back to the grid any excess energy which we create and do not use. I thought the pv cells wouldn't cover all our running costs needed for the house; fridge, washing machine, lights etc, but apparently we're getting the super maxi turbo size version.
