How much was your home heating bill this winter? Were you still rugged up at night and freezing when you got up in the morning despite the heater running flat out?
How would you feel about a home that you can get around in barefoot through winter, where you may only turn the heating on every few days, and never during a sunny day?
If you want to learn about things you can do to make your existing house more sustainable, or ideas to incorporate into a new home design, this Sunday is the day to do it.
Sustainable House Day features 13 homes in the Canberra and Queanbeyan areas open for inspection. You can preview the homes on the SHD website (including my place – “Harrison 1”).
Entry is $5 per person per house or $10 per family. Open times are 10am – 4pm.
There are also some schools open on Saturday 10am to 3pm and one office building – details on the website.
