For people with sustainability on their minds who are looking to build a home, put 2015 Sustainable House Day this weekend on your to-do list.

Sustainable House Day on Sunday will see homeowners around Australia swing open their doors and welcome the public into their sustainability-focused properties.

Sustainable House Day provides a unique opportunity to look around these houses, meet and talk to the owners and designers and get some insight into the principles of sustainable design and solar architecture.

Each of the houses was designed around sustainable design principles using passive solar design, solar hot water heaters, solar panels for creating electricity and many other sustainable design features.

Sustainable House Day is the only national event of its kind, offering an opportunity for the general public to view and access practical information on sustainable living from fellow homeowners.

For more than 10 years, Sustainable House Day has provided a great opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people to visit some of Australia’s leading green homes – ones  that are not only environmentally friendly, but cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in. For more information on Sustainable House Day please visit their website.
