Quick Update.

Ok, I've lifted up more floorboards and cleaned underneath them, and insulated above granny's kitchen and bathroom now.

Currently there's 100MM there, need to get another bale of insulation material to top it up to 200MM total.

 A nice old wasp nest, approximately 30cm by 20cm...

 Rat nest one!
 Rat nest 2!
Nice and clear under where the bitumen paper was. 
And a right sodding mess where the paper was instead of bitumen paper, lots of mice and rat activity, straw earth and dust underneath the boards.

We've more or less come to the conclusion of what everything is going to cost... and I honestly don't know what's going to happen now after all the work that was put into calculating materials and approaching companies.

Granny is trying to push me to insulate above her room, but there's no point if we are putting a new ceiling, windows, walls and floors in as I will just need to remove all the insulation again.. But I don't know if we are going to do the whole plan now, or if we are forgetting about it, I have no idea, seems a shame though after all the work and time that was put into starting it.

Especially all the work that has been done upstairs in cleaning it up so there's access for heating pipes and electricity, and all the calculations for materials and research, as well as getting specialists involved.. perhaps it was all for nothing, who knows!

Time will tell.
