Discover the benefits of building an environmentally and economically sustainable home with Earthbags. This includes how to address the basic requirements of Australian Building Code and what it means in terms of Energy Efficiency (including heating and cooling), Bushfire Ratings, Structural Integrity, Use of Recycled Materials, and more.
Kate Ryan-Taylor and her husband Scott are building Australia’s first council approved Earthbag dome home. After spending 2 years in the planning process, Kate and Scott are now on target to build their home for under $35,000 in less than 18 months from start to finish. Kate is presenting today and keen to share the knowledge to enable others to build a sustainable home in an affordable way from the Ground Up.
Listen to Kate at the Sustainable Community Festival Saturday 23rd March in the Albany Town Square.
