Demonstration Home

Commonsense Homepage-3

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
– Double-glazing
– 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, including copies of the Home Buyer’s Guide.

The home will be open from mid-2021 on Saturday and Sunday at 10.00a.m., 1.00p.m. and 3.00p.m.
