In October 2017 Commonsense Sustainability Solutions started the process to construct an exemplar demonstration home, based on the Your Home ‘Design for Place’ house.
This demonstration home will showcase a range of sustainable living features, including:
– 8 Star NatHERS standard
– Efficient appliances
– Renewable energy systems
– Efficient water use features
– Green roof studio
– And much more…
In collaboration with SEE-Change and with support from the ACT Government Community Zero Emissions Grant Program, this home will also:
– Offer guided tours explaining the sustainability features of the home, rather than selling a standard product.
– Showcase demonstration videos and educational displays of how the various systems work (for example, cut-away wall sections and small construction models).
– Have information about the different sustainability options that are available, for home buyers to consider.
The home will be open from early 2021 on Saturday and Sunday at 10.00a.m., 1.00p.m. and 3.00p.m.
