Sustainable House Day this Sunday

By Gungahlin Al 10 September 2008 25

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.

What’s Your opinion?

Having read this thread, and seen how much Al put into building his home responsibly, I have one thing to say:
GungahlinAl for Mayor!
Ditch that Sonic clown!

He’d get my vote …

BTW apologies if you did get there and I didn’t get a chance to talk – felt like I barely came up for air all day. It was about a person every 2 minutes through the house.

The funds cover the advertising, website and other promotional expenses.
Wouldn’t imagine there’s much left over.

House hosts get $130 to cover cleaning costs – that’s all.
Great that rain last night – clay…

What charity are the funds raised going to?
