SHD House Tour: Cabarlah House
Renew's Toowoomba Members' Branch will be hosting tours of three Toowoomba region sustainable houses on Sustainable House Day, 17 October. Visitors will have a chance to talk to the homeowners about their experience of having a sustainable house built and what it is like to live in a thermally comfortable energy efficient home. Designers and builders will be present to answer questions too.
This residence was designed with open plan living to make use of natural lighting, wide open spaces and display the amazing view over the great dividing range. With textural stone pillars framing the entry and the timber clad gable, the materials create a connection between the home and surrounding landscape. Designed by Lockhart Design, built by leading sustainable home builder Geoff Gibson Homes, and with an 18kw solar system installed by Proven Energy, the house is designed to maximise airflow and retain a comfortable temperature while using minimal energy. The owners are passionate about the environment and reducing their carbon footprint, so this recently built family home was made with sustainability in mind, and designed to help realise future plans to continue reducing the owners’ impact.
