In this world of trying to live a better life, what does that mean exactly? What does that really look like for the general person trying to find their way through all the righteousness that exists everywhere?

Most of us want to save money, have a guilt free conscience, and enjoy ourselves as much as possible. Is it really possible? Here at no 46 there seems to be the right balance of living at one with the environment but also living at this time in life.
 
There is a great rainwater harvesting system that consists of 5 water butts strategically placed around the property collecting the rain water from various points of advantage so water is captured and used as needed, with plenty left over.
 
Solar PV sits proudly on the front roof and has encouraged several neighbours to join the free electricity movement and using all their appliances during the day to maximise the return.
 
And the lifestyle Pauline and Alan live is normal, hardworking, but conscious. They have a great food growing garden that’s not only practical but beautiful to be in and they live in a warm, cosy, well insulated home.  If you are looking to move into this world of working with nature, then come here and see how it can be achieved in today’s full on culture.
