Nicola Furner is an architect specialising in eco refurbishment using natural materials, ideally sourced locally, and using reliable local tradesmen.

56.0pt 84.0pt 112.0pt 140.0pt 168.0pt 196.0pt 224.0pt 3.5in 280.0pt 308.0pt 336.0pt">Potters lane is a very attractive Edwardian terraced house that she has used as a showcase for a whole range of energy saving measures such as Solar thermal hot water, high levels of insulation and glazing, and an efficient and eco friendly boiler. Prior to the latest reglazing, the house had already reached an EPC level of C and Nicola ultimately hopes to achieve B, which would be extraordinary for a house of this age.

In particular, she has sought out replacements for her Crittall windows of the similar design, but insulated to PassivHaus standards.
