Rainwater harvesting for flushing loos

Old cesspit used for collecting the rainwater that would otherwise have gone into the drainage system.

Heat recovery ventilation system via a heat exchanger giving fresh air in every room 

 Heat recovery ventilation system via a heat exchanger giving fresh air in every room, by recycling energy from old warm air to fresh air. Along with high levels of insulation and draft proofing producing a very low carbon footprint.

Coupled with a room sealed log burner that draws its combustion air directly from its own external supply makes for a highly efficient heating option. (A conventional log burner draws the air used for combustion from the room, the room would then draw in cold air from outside which is counter productive.
