I used to live in a very cold flat where it used to get to 8 deg C in
the mornings.

I used to live in a house in which ice formed on the inside of the
windows during the night. This was in the 1940s.

You had windows? Luxury!

also live in an uninsulated 1930s solid wall house with a flat roof and
zero insulation and getting it up much above 18degC is hard. I'd like
insulate but that involves removing the roof or ceilings throughout the
house and removing the external render, cladding and re-rendering. It
will get done at some point but it's not cheap and there are more
matters tugging at my wallet.

I trump you with my 1901 terrace house. It does have the advantage of
sucking in quite a bit of heat from my neighbours on both sides though. I
too have the windows open most of the time, and hate being in
where the temperature is the same everywhere.
A nearby house was recently clad in insulation and then re-rendered.
When I
see the owners I will be asking whether they notice a difference because
do notice the cold when it truly arrives.

I live in a flat and put extra roof insulation on the flat roof. Quite a
noticeable difference overnight and also lower bills.

My flat is almost completely surrounded - generally only use heating to thaw
out after I've been out in the cold.
