This business was started in 1976 around the concept of personal autonomy and freedom achieved by producing, consuming and treating as much as possible all of our needs on site and reducing our dependency on others.
We can provide feedback on the appropriateness of your current house design and make recommendations for improving it's energy efficiency but ideally you should obtain the services of an architect or building designer who specialises in passive solar building design to build in passive solar concepts in your building from the ground up. This approach will reduce your heating, cooling and lighting loads and if incorporated from the very start can be achieved without large additional building costs.
Many of the things we supply if they have electrical or plumbing connections are also planned for in the building design stage and we provide a consultancy service to show where and how items are best incorporated into your house so problems aren't encountered once the house is built. We can also give you recommendations on building materials and finishes with the best health and environmental credentials to protect you and your family.
