This Sunday the 13th of September is Sustainable House Day 2009. From 10am to 4pm sustainable homes across Australia will be open to the public, offering everyone the opportunity to have a look inside sustainable homes in their neighbourhood and pick up tips on how to make their own homes more sustainable.
Nationally around 170 homes are open for viewing including 5 in Brisbane (see here for address details and information on each house) and to make it even more appealing it is absolutely free.
Homes range from renovated queenslanders to custom sustainable designs and should provide a wealth of information and inspiration for all of us in improving our own homes. According to the website, architects, builders and home sustainability assessors will also be present at some of the homes to provide expert advice on how to achieve some of these goals.
On a more parochial note, none of the sustainable houses are located within "our" suburbs here on the westside of town. Perhaps a good challenge for next year would be to have a member of TTKD showing off their sustainable home? Any takers?
