Bad Things

Green oak shrank and pinged off some edges of the lime render, Lost some logged data, Problems with auto shutter controls, Heat exchanger tries to keep house warm in the summer! The house is so well sound insulated that the easiest way in for noise is through the ceiling and even with 450mm of glass fibre quilt it is noticable and I wish that I had double tacked the ceilings. Front door lock broke several times in the first six years and even more remarkably I am on my sixth porch light 🙁
