Jill has always had queues of visitors to her brick terraced cottage on open days, eager to see the cheap and near-invisible magnetic-strip secondary glazing that her house features. She and colleagues have now made a video demonstrating and explaining all about it, see: EcoLewes. She urges you to watch it before visiting! You might also like to print out a simple self-guide floorplan of the features of Jill’s house (8 Wille Cottages floorplan) – the house gets quite busy sometimes so this will give you a good start.

The house also features LED lighting (see Jill's beginner's guide to LED), and this year she is hosting a new special display of LED lights by Lewes LED experts EFT Electrical (eft-electrical.com) – just the place to see how the lighting looks and learn how much money you’ll instantly start saving.

Jill can also talk to you about insulation, underfloor heating, and small ways about the house for you to save money and the planet. Her work on creating an energy-saving house has qualified her as a SuperHome, a national network of homes which have reduced their energy usage by at least 60% and which hold open days to
show how to make your home greener, warmer and cheaper to run.
