Requirements for Sustainable House Day homeowners

Please note that things have changed this year, with homes around the country opening to in person visits. Opening your home this year will require you to:

1. Update your online profile detailing your homes sustainability credentials;

It’s up to you, but you may want to refresh your profile! You can edit this profile at any time, once you have logged into the Homeowner Dashboard.

2. If you haven’t already, create a simple house tour video,

This can be as simple as filming a video on your phone, or speaking to a slideshow presentation. Our team will be able to support you to make this video.

3. Optional: Open your home on April 21st 2024

We will work with you to organise this day, and you will supported through the entire process. Attendees will need to book in to scheduled tour times. Please note — opening your home is optional, and if you would prefer to take part with just an online house profile we can work around your needs.

  • If you have not opened your home previously, you must register and submit a new application.
  • Please paste the link to your house profile from previous years below
  • In 2024, Sustainable House Day is back in person. This means participating homes will be open to the public, but we would still love to hear from you if you would like to take part in an online-only capacity.
    I understand that the information that I submit here will shared with the Sustainable House Day Selection Panel, and I will be notified if my home is selected.
    Some homes that are part of Sustainable House Day will also be featured in Sanctuary Magazine. Please indicate if this is something that you would be open to:
    Please indicate if you had professional photography taken of your home. This may have been undertaken by the architect or designer involved. Please note, having your home professionally photographed will not affect the selection process.
    I understand and provide permission for Renew to use the supplied images of this home for any media/promotional purposes in relation to SHD2024. This includes on social media and in publications such as newspapers, magazines and websites. Please note that whenever an image is used, we will credit the home, designer/architect, and photographer. NOTE: If these photos were taken by a professional photographer and you do not hold rights to them, you will need to ask your photographer before checking 'yes'.
