If the mushroom growing beds were enclosed in the micro-environment of a  
cloche then there should be minimal risk to SB in the walls and whatever  
insulation is in the ceiling.

Assuming that mushrooms don't need light, the cloches (diverted from the  
waste-stream tempered glass or polyethylene sheet draped over wire hoops)  
could also be covered with moveable insulation to retain heat within the  

This should help to significantly reduce the amount of energy consumed to  
condition the building interior.
