Refurbishment Case Study 16

This case study describes the thermal improvements made to the fabric of a mid-19th century granite farmhouse in Aberdeenshire. While thermal refurbishment of domestic properties is well established, there are many aspects of the refurbishment of traditionally constructed properties where more evidence is needed to inform best practice, from the point of view of both the on-going health of the building and, more importantly, the occupants. This case study will describe interventions to the floors, coombed ceilings and walls of a building that is typical of the rural architecture of north east Scotland.
