The lodge is of residential spec, so the double-glazed windows all have windowsills due to the thickness of the walls. It is fully insulated throughout so even though the cold and possibly snowy winter months you will be kept warm and snug.
The central heating is controlled by the hive unit which has a set schedule however should it turn cold you can override the schedule and turn the heating up but due to the insulation, the lodge tends to keep the heat in.
