Seeking sustainable homes to showcase Sunday September16

Inspire, educate and share your story at Sustainable House Open Day, Sunday September 16, 2018 

We are taking a break from the Sustainable House Day Design Competition this year. However, we are super excited to announce that we will host another Open House Day on Sunday 16 September across all of the Northern Rivers.

This event, which will follow on from the Tweed Living for the Future Home Expo on the Saturday, is a great way to inspire Northern Rivers’ residents with the best in local sustainable building.

Last year’s event was a runaway success, educating local owner/builders about the environmental and cost benefits of passive design, using recycled materials, local labour, tips on ventilation, solar heating and power, as well as using non-toxic building materials.

We are calling on sustainable builders, designers and visionaries to open their homes, hearts and wisdom and share their sustainable building stories with their local community, which in turn helps our region to lighten its collective footprint and continue its outstanding reputation as a sustainability leader in green building.

If you would like to showcase your home and share your passion and knowledge about sustainable living and what you learned we would love to hear from you. Either drop us a line directly at or register on the national website
