Earth-friendly house project

In August of this year we started a new project to build a new family house that will (we hope) stand as an example of how eco-friendly a family house can be.

Our intention is to incorporate as many practical features as possible that will allow the building and running of the house have the minimum carbon and other material footprint as possible. To see and follow the details of this project please visit the project blog http://ifd66.co.uk/ecohouse/blog/main/main.html

Features will include low carbon footprint concrete, water capture, greywater recycling, double glazing, solar (and may be wind) energy, wood burning stove, passive heating, compost toilet.
