I think I'm downing the "underfloor heating" because we didn't go with it. I would probably like to try walking around one of the houses with it and see if…

Thanks for that. Very interesting! I have seen some established homes on sale around here, many of them have 'underfloor heating' which sounds like a gimmick to me -…

That's kinda cool there's a website and online tracking of your build? Definitely don't have that with ours. Though, given ours is a franchisee, they are a bit old school.…
