We’re part of Sustainable House Day this year

Posted on Updated on

Just one of the things to see at our house on Sustainable House Day (click to see larger version)

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 🙂

Browse the list of houses open on Sustainable House Day, and plan your visits!
