Transform the impact of your homestead
on the environment
using simple and efficient solutions.
Sunlight is captured using solar panels and saved by batteries for the house's energy supply.
The rain is slowed down by ditches that are at the same water level, grey water flows into these ditches and drip irrigation is provided by stored rainwater.
Rainwater supplies the house of water for cooking and showering and the irrigation systems is run by it too.
The floor and walls are isolated with eco-bricks and surfboard scraps, both donated by friends and neighbours.
Low impact building materials
By-product lumber serves as an interior siding, slate stone is used instead of ceramics, and recycled oak beams are used for support.
