Highbury Homes joined Solar Dwellings and the well-known ABC TV’s Gardening Australia presenter Josh Byrne, to build two 10 star rated energy efficient family homes.
Focusing on building a quality hybrid home featuring:
– Efficient design
– Photovoltaic and battery storage energy systems
– Wall types, star ratings and R-values
– Framed construction
– Recycling and reducing on site waste
The two homes are thermally comfortable all year round without the need for air- conditioning or heating. They generate more electricity than the families’ usage, harvest rainwater, recycle grey water, and share a common garden packed with fruit and vegetables that significantly reduces their grocery bills. The project also demonstrates a more sensitive approach to residential subdivision, maximising the garden area surrounding the homes to allow for natural shading, children’ play spaces and local food production.
