Happy New Year to all!
We hope that you have your most prosperous and enjoyable year yet!
The commencement of 2011 marks the year that we will commence build of our eco house.
We plan to build a new eco friendly property of our very own that will have as minimal impact as possible on the environment in terms of CO2 emissions. We aim for these emissions to be zero (a ‘zero carbon’ home) or as near to as possible.
During the construction of the property, we will also be conscious of the embodied energy or the environmental impact of the sourcing and use of the chosen building materials, to keep this impact as low as possible.
2011 sees the launch of London Eco House!
We hope that by sharing the journey we may offer some useful information or suggestions to others or perhaps even inspire others to embark on their own eco journey; however small or large
In addition this may provide us with some learnings into the way property will need to be built in the future, as by 2016 all new homes will need to built in this way, with the same high standards of energy efficiency and minimal impact on the environment.
If we can be successful in our quest we want to share the success further through a donation to an ‘eco’ charity of your choice, on completion of the property. See here for how you can vote and help us to choose the worthy cause.
We hope you can join us on this journey and you find it as interesting, challenging and hopefully rewarding as I am sure we will.
OK, lets get moving then.
Cheers to 2011
