Let’s design and build high performance, energy efficient and all electric sustainable homes.

Designing or renovating your home so it is more sustainable can provide much greater comfort and lifestyle opportunities as well as ongoing financial savings.

In our temperate region of Victoria, sustainable housing means

  • a highly insulated building envelope
  • orientation for maximum solar gain
  • appropriate shading
  • use of thermal mass
  • double glazing
  • onsite solar generation
  • water & energy efficient appliances
  • rainwater harvesting
  • grey water recycling
  • recycling of waste/composting.

While few of us will ever get the opportunity to design, construct and live in a house that “ticks all the boxes” – we can all make changes that will make a real difference to our lives.
