It’s great to see what people have done to meet sustainability needs, and this is what makes national Sustainable House Day so valuable. Put it in your diary: Sunday 9th September 2012, 10am-4pm.
There are a bunch of houses across Sydney participating, including ours.
We’d love for you to drop by for a tour or a chat, and this is what you’ll see:
- Sensible sustainability improvements to a free-standing Federation House, including solar panels, water tanks and insulation
- A recently-completed eco-extension, the result of six months of owner-builder work. Lots of natural wood, a rammed earth wall, low VOC products, double- and triple-glazing, and much more besides.
- A permaculture garden that gives us almost complete self-sufficiency, including backyard chickens and native stingless bees.
Our house is right next to Lewisham Station, and a short bike-ride from the city 🙂
