Sustainable House Day 2012


Sunday the 9th September 2012; 10am-4pm

 

Each year selected home owners across Australia open their doors to the public to demonstrate sustainable features of their homes.  

Some homes are new; others are older homes that have been renovated or extended. 

It is a great way to see what others have done, hear how they went about it, and learn what they would do next time (if they had the chance).  

What a great way to gather information for your new home or renovation.

This year, builder Energy Aspect Living will be involved in two Sustainable House Day opens;
Beulah Park : Step behind an 1800’s cottage in Beulah Park and you will discover an extension that makes the most of its northern aspect.  Designed by Troppo Architects and built by Energy Aspect Living the extension includes a new living area, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and basement.  Features include rammed earth wall, sealed concrete floors, and recycled timber features including benchtops.

Lochend House at Lochiel Park : Lochend House provides a venue to show and discuss, with the public for the very first time, the Zero Carbon Home design.  The Zero Carbon Home was designed by team Energy Aspect Living, the only builder driven team in the State Governments Zero Carbon Challenge.  View the home design and discover what is in planning for Zero Carbon Home.


Visit a home this year and you can also pick up a free Energy Aspect Living compass tool, so you can discover hidden aspects of your new home or renovation; and a bookmark that has a secret.

To find out addresses and view more information on homes that are open this year go to the Sustainable House Day website.
