The homes will be thermally comfortable year round, without the need for air conditioning or additional heating. They will generate more electricity than they use and will harvest and recycle water.
What sets this project apart from many others is that the building designs have achieved a 10 Star energy efficiency rating, whilst intentionally using conventional building materials and construction methods so that they can easily be replicated by industry and the wider community. Josh also wants to prove that all of this can be done for the same cost as a typical family home. You can follow Josh’s journey via the online videos.
