Description

1980s bungalow: With a focus on resilience and low impact living, this eco-home primarily uses wood and solar power, with gas heating as back-up only. It includes recycled and reclaimed materials, and some low cost and DIY features, while a recently added composting toilet further reduces water and energy use. Download the full case study here
