-- THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED --
Saturday 8th Sep - Sunday 9th Sep, 2018
Planning is well ahead for SLA’s fourth biennial Sustainable House Tour. To be held over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September it’s a great opportunity to look at a variety of local houses (not seen before in the SLA Tour) that all have some sustainable features.
It’s a self-drive tour. You buy a booklet for $25 that has listings, info, opening times and a map, and that gives a carload of you and your friends access to the 10 houses.
The best thing is that you get to talk to the people who live in the houses, share information and opinions about various features.
We’re very appreciative of those who are willing to open their houses for inspection.
This year the houses include an extension to an 1881 cottage; a conversion of a tin shed; an addition to an existing garage; a factory-built transportable house; some recently-built new houses, and an owner-built house staged over 18 years.
There’s mud brick, compressed earth bricks, an innovative integrated roofing system, hydronic floor heating, phase change materials, recycled and upcycled materials, lots of double glazing, solar power, and solar hot water.
