The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - BUILD - sus­tain­able­house­

More than 170 houses will be open across Aus­tralia and up to 20,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to take part.

The homes were de­signed, built or ren­o­vated with sus­tain­abil­ity as a key goal. All homes have a min­i­mum of four sus­tain­able fea­tures.

Any­one want­ing to visit the homes must reg­is­ter via the web­site prior to the day. Once you have regis­tered you will be given ac­cess to house ad­dresses to visit.

Sus­tain­able House Day is a free event although some homes may charge a gold coin do­na­tion to go to char­ity.

The event is run by the Al­ter­na­tive Tech­nol­ogy As­so­ci­a­tion. It show­cases pas­sive so­lar de­sign prin­ci­ples, en­ergy sav­ing ideas as well as tech­nolo­gies such as PV cells.

The liv­ing space opens to a deck, fa­cil­i­tat­ing in­door-out­door liv­ing.
