Historic Scotland Refurbishment Case Studies: Wee Causeway, Culross – Insulation to walls and roof
This report forms part of a series of Refurbishment Case Studies, and describes works undertaken to improve the thermal performance of the walls and loft space of a detached cottage in Culross, Fife, owned by the National Trust for Scotland. One of the main objectives of the project was to investigate various fabric interventions which could be used to improve the thermal performance of traditionally constructed buildings in order to inform future work in other properties owned by the Trust. A specific aim was to bring about the greatest improvement in thermal performance by using, where possible, vapour permeable materials to allow the building fabric, whilst retaining as much of the original building fabric as possible.
