Mini green roofs

I am giving a short talk at the London Green Fair next month on building your own green roof so I have been looking around for examples.

They are starting to appear all over the place now. Near my home in Lambeth there is a lovely community roof on some garages where they grow wheat and the South bank centre put up a lovely roof last year with allotments.

Up in North London I came across this roof in a front garden, the best
looking bin cupboard I have seen. I also think this could be applied to front garden bike sheds as well and make them a much more attractive part of the streetscape, maybe they could put one in Bonnington Square in the future to go with the current metal one. As Ecoalex I will certainly be recommending similar ones.

I am quite looking forward to the talk and will hopefully generate some questions and debate. I will also have a mini green roof with me so you can see how they are put together and imagine what you might do so come along and see me on the Saturday.

If you can’t make it but would like some help building a roof get in touch with me at Ecoalex.

Loft insulation with clutter

I have just started working on a little project to insulate a loft without losing the storage space in the loft for my company Ecoalex Ltd. Like most people in London my customer has a lot of junk in the loft and doesn’t want to lose it as a storage space.

We are planning to use loft stilts to raise the existing boards up 175mm so we can get in the recommended 270mm of insulation. As you can get the insulation done for free from various companies that is being arranged separately. In the meantime we worked out the number of boards needed to create two areas of 2m2 and then the number of stilts to order to support them. All due to happen at the weekend, I will let you know how it goes and update with some photos.

Update 1: The stilts have arrived and we are all ready to install tomorrow.
