How To Design & Build An Energy Efficient House (e book)

Reducing the Footprint

This e-book describes our story of how we designed & built an energy efficient, 99% chemical free, passive solar home in Northern NSW, Australia. With plenty of photos, diagrams and a floor plan this book gives a detail step-by-step guide so that you too could build your own home. Bathe your home in the winter sun and keep it cool in summer with natural free air-con. See how you can build a house from recycled and natural materials. There is plenty of information on how we live off the grid using renewable energy - solar power, solar hot water and rainwater. Also read about our ‘no flush’ composting toilet system. This concise and informative e-book is written for beginners, owner home builders and all who wish to incorporate energy efficiency into designing and building, with many ideas on how to decrease our carbon footprint and live a more sustainable life.
