Refurbishment Case Study 3

Wee Causeway, Culross – Insulation to walls and roof

Refurbishment Case Study 3

This case study describes upgrade work carried out to a detached stone cottage, Wee Causeway, in Culross, Fife. The cottage is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is situated in a small village on the Firth of Forth. Wee Causeway was used in trials to explore different options of wall and roof insulation upgrades, in order to improve the thermal performance of the building. The project aimed to retain as much of the original building fabric as possible whilst bringing about the greatest improvement to thermal performance and vapour permeability.
