1. Provide a step-by-step guide for anyone wanting to renovate sustainably
2. Demonstrate that a sustainable home can be inner city cool and doesn’t have to look like a hippy log cabin
3. Document all the costs, my mistakes and successes – I’ll make the mistakes so you don’t have to!
4. Minimise costs – I want sustainable living to be accessible by everyone
My name is Laura Ryan and this is my soon to be sustainable house. I’m trying to find a way to live (affordably) off-grid in the middle of the city. I’m looking to finish the build in 2022 and it’s been a tough journey so far. Please use this site as a reference tool for your own sustainable house design.
