The White House is a NON-SMOKING house and the area is a Non-smoking area – smokers (or people who have just finished a cigarette) will be refused entry.

A fabulous new, all-electric, light filled home has been designed to be warm naturally in the winter. Keeping us warm in winter and cool in summer without having to rely so much on mechanical heating and cooling. Passive solar designed, this home is insulated and draught proofed to keep heat and coolth in the building. Windows have been positioned to provide plenty of natural daylight throughout the house, reducing the need to have lights on even on those darker winter days.

The PV system on the roof of this home generates far more electricity than we would need to use.
