    I thought it was being turned into a Distillery and Brewery, taking inspiration from his Avatar.

    That would be some house warming party.

    I imagine it as being like the 'Titty Twister' from that film 'From Dusk Till Dawn'. Or maybe Bob's Country Bunker from The Blues Brothers.

    My guestimation - £6k+ for that malarkey.

    Get 1 wetback wood burner and 1 dry back (aga cooker?) burner plumbed in and some solar panels to back the system up. Hot water for the summer months when you don't want to light a fire and some heat through the system to counteract the ebb and flow of the wood burners output during winter.

    2.5 KW's per room. So, a 16kw wood burner given proper insulation, should heat up 6 rooms amicably.

    The guesses so far don't add up to the quote :(

    Already got an aga but the plumbers all seem keep to isolate it and do the hot water via a pressurised system (currently got two hot water tanks, one of the aga and one of the boiler)
  • pinnopinno Posts: 43,247
    Aaaaargh. Not one of those pressurised systems?

    Make it pressurised and add a de-neutraliser valve or two to counteract the pressurised system. I'd get a different plumber.

    It's a bit like a 7 series BMW. Refined, luxurious, fast... ah but then, take a big car that has inherent problems because it's big and add a whole load of technology like traction control, electronic stability management, LSD's and computer managed anti-roll functions to overcome and enhance handling when the fact that it has inherent problems...
    Do you see where I am coming from?

    We've got 5 radiators and 2 towel rails. :oops:
    If the price is going to be that high is it not worth looking at left field eco type stuff? Aren't there heat exchanger systems that take heat from underground and other weirdness like that?

    looked at a few hippy solutions, but we don't think this is a forever house, so payback isn't quick enough & would put a stop on a few of the other projects (buying some land and building a MTB track)

    Understandable, I know which sound like more fun.

    use stevo to filter the money off so the accounts show those rooms cant be paid for yet, whilst building your mtb track

    This whilst a good idea assumes two things, one stevo survives the downhill day and two his charges are less than the costs

    That's a bit like spending money on a piggy bank and then you've no money left to put in the piggy bank.

    So the assumption that the charges will be greater than the costs is correct then?
