Daisybank heating pipes connected Work continues on the new Daisybank log cabin with the heating pipes being connected up to the ground source heating system, which now runs all four of our cosy cabins.

Heating pipes being installed There is no boiler in the new Daisybank cabin - the insulated heating pipes simply come up into the storeroom and are connected to the internal ...

Thanks to David’s masterful woodwork the dreadfull pipes are hidden from sight and he has expertly replaced all the gravel and stone walls – you can hardly tell that we had whole area dug up only a week ago – thank goodness! We are delighted with the new system and h...
