What makes a home sustainable?
Find out at our March Sustainability for Lunch event with a sneak preview of Envy Eco-focussed Environment's Haus 8+10 project before it goes public!
Built with Insulated Concrete Forms and suspended slab concrete floors, and sealed with European tilt & turn windows, this home promises excellent indoor air quality. Zero VOC finishes, custom bamboo and formaldehyde free built-ins throughout are standard. A massive Photo Voltaic Solar roof top array, state of the art hydronic heating system, and an all encompassing home automation system keep operating costs and energy use in check. Built for long term durability, Haus 8 + 10 offers open and adaptable interior space to accommodate families for centuries to come, not just decades.
This tour will demonstrate what is possible when a builder cares about the environment first. Learn what questions to ask when building a home so that we can all achieve greater accountability from the building industry or take away a few tips & tricks to make improvements to your existing home. Become empowered to ask the question 'why is it being done that way?' and resolve to never accept the answer 'because we have always done it that way'.
Make everyone Envy your personal Eco-focussed Environment!
