Guest Speaker: Simone from Viva Homes

Simone Peita from Viva Homes will talk about Sustainable House Building, including strawbale houses.

Living in an Award Winning 9 star Strawbale Home means your home will be built to last, is seriously energy efficient and it’s healthy for your family. A nine star straw bale home is a mind blowing feat (ABSA energy rated). It means super low energy bills, it’s sustainable, solar passive and carbon neutral. It’s one of the highest rated homes in Australia.

Natural materials they use include: Light straw, rammed earth, cob, poured earth, wattle and daub, earthen floors, green roofs, stone, mud brick, hempcrete, pressed earth bricks, clay renders, lime renders, gypsum renders, recycled materials and timber (traditional timber frames, reclaimed, local, sustainable, FSC), to name a few. Whichever natural materials are the most energy efficient (using thermal mass and insulation for maximum benefit), and the ones you like they’ll use. Most other builders want to cover the world in the product they personally prefer. As long as it’s natural, energy efficient and meets your budget, they’ll work with it.
