In this final episode of About the House, we look at the issues facing homeowners of houses both old and new.

We revisit Cloughjordan to see the problems inherent in building a passive new build, something all new homes will need to be in just 2 years.

And we look at the issues facing people wanting to live in period homes. How do you update these old houses to make them energy efficient without compromising the features that make them so attractive?
