Jazz’s passion was to live in the Ecovillage, her budget meant that she could only do a small home. Part of the Ecovillage vision, mission and aim is to build sustainable housing and be a demonstration village to the wider community.
The house has achieved a 9-star rating. Thermal mass/insulation will help to keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer without resorting to excess heating or air conditioning. There will be a concrete slab on ground, Scyon cladding for the external walls and a colorbond roof. There are only 2 windows on the south side and all are double glazed.
Jazz will not have a dishwasher or tumble dryer in the home.
