Your Home is a comprehensive guide to the design principles and features that add value to your home and reduce its environmental impact. Many of them come at no additional cost. They just require the right ‘know how’ at the right stage of your renovation or building project. Others may add cost but also add lasting value and help to ‘future-proof’ your home against rising energy and water costs.
Each section in Your Home covers a particular sustainability theme, such as passive design or energy. A sustainable home needs to address all of these themes in tandem. The principles and ideas in each section can be applied to any home.
The articles in each section contain advice on practical solutions you can adapt to your budget, climate and lifestyle. As sustainable housing technologies and approaches are evolving all the time, Your Home is periodically updated to keep the information current.
