Description - The Sustainable House Handbook: How to plan and build an affordable, energy-efficient and waterwise home for the future by Josh Byrne

The Sustainable House Handbook is your comprehensive guide to building an affordable, eco-friendly and energy- plus water-efficient green home for the future. In this book, sustainability expert and Gardening Australia presenter Josh Byrne takes readers through the process of planning a 10-Star rated high-performance home according to the Australian Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), and outlines how it is possible to build with conventional materials, in an accessible and cost-effective way.

Josh shows how to create a family home that is comfortable year-round, without the need for air conditioning or additional heating, how to integrate solar power to cover household needs, and how to reduce water usage by integrating rainwater tanks and greywater recycling systems. He also discusses how to cleverly incorporate organic food production in the garden while maintaining a highly attractive space that improves health and wellbeing.

Illustrated throughout with photos, plans, charts, diagrams and useful statistics and measurements, The Sustainable House Handbook is an accessible, easy-to-follow resource for anyone planning their dream house, or thinking about how to live more sustainably.
