Insulation

As ZenZinnia has solid walls the house needed to have additional insulation added.  After some research (and finding some already used in the house) we decided to use phenolic foam-backed plaster board.  This is relatively quick and easy to install and has less environmental consequences than other products such as polystyrene.  It provideds good insulation in a minimal depth.  This was important in the loft with it's 'cathedral' ceilings.
