Sustainable House Day welcomes you to sustainability-focused properties

By Mozo ·

Sustainable House Day this Sunday brings a good opportunity for people who are looking to build a sustainable home in Australia.

While homeowners across the country will open their doors to welcome people into their sustainability-focused properties, in Tasmania the public can visit houses in Lucaston, Lachlan, Port Sorell, Fern Tree, Huonville, Devonport and Mountain River, reported news.com.au.

The event presents a good forum for people looking to see such houses and engage with homeowners and designers to get a better insight into the principles of sustainable design and solar architecture.

These houses are designed around sustainable design principles using solar design, water harvesting and saving facilities, solar panels for generating electricity along with other sustainable design features. These features can range from anything that goes towards sustainable lifestyles, energy saving and healthy home practices.

The only national event of its kind, Sustainable House Day started in 2001 as an initiative of the Australian Solar Council. This year, the event will be run by the Alternative Technology Association and EnviroShop with the support of sustainability groups, councils and volunteers.

“For all prospective homeowners this event is a must, giving you all the knowledge and details to design and build your future sustainable dream house,” said sustainability guru Detlev Geard.

Sustainable House Day will run between 10am and 4pm on Sunday. But some homes may specify different opening times on their individual profile pages. People interested in finding more information about these homes and open times, can visit the Sustainable House Day website.
