Yes there are two more....... right next door to each other, these are slightly larger, but still zero energy smallfootprint homes.
These homes are living labs and display homes for the other projects underway . These homes are the ideal model for future urbanisation and sustainable living. The time is not here as yet for the one bedroom home to be the "normal way to live" -valuers find it hard to value, Councils find it hard to support, as no product like this exists as yet. With lengthy delays, years in planning, many VCAT sessions, much discussion, these three smallfootprint zero energy homes were built, the first of their kind, revolutionary, cutting edge the first glimpse of the future. They are here as an example of how these homes are designed , compact yet spacious, luxury yet minimalist --zero energy, no more energy bills - these smallfootprint houses are the future. They are the display homes for smallfootprint, to show our customers and members the opportunity to walk through and experience the zero energy smallfootprint way
