We never realised just how much pipework, cable, and ducting goes into a house !

Just glad that the plumbers and electricians know, what connects to where !!


Our plant cupboard looked huge when it was built, but now it’s full of

electrics, water tanks, security alarm,  heat exchanger and underheating manifolds.

Our vertical service riser is also full of ducting for the ventilation and heat

recovery, but this will be concealed behind a false back in the linen cupboard.


Our engineered floor joists have made life much easier for the builder,

as cables and pipes are simply threaded through the voids without having to

drill out and holes. The first floor has now been screeded, which not only

makes th efloor feel more solid but also provides thermal mass for the

hidden underfloor heating pipes.
