Thermal Store Installation

So the new thermal store arrived early this week after a very long wait. The store had to be custom built in Scotland to fit in the attic space; off the shelf thermal stores are taller and thinner cylindrical shapes. As you can see from the pictures below, my store is shorter and wider.

The attic hatch had to be widened to get the store into the attic:


Here it is in its final resting place, in the early stages of plumbing. The outer casing is a hardened foam resin insulation.


The pipework leads down to the right side of the rear chimney breast:


The reserve tank from which the store is filled:


And finally the front windows are essentially finished with their final colour, the painter has done a fantastic job. Note that the colour scheme of the house itself will be changed completely. (Light was fading and it was raining, better pictures coming soon):
