What would you define as a water efficient property?

How about starting with a water monthly direct debit of £17. This is the actual cost for water here at Beechwood Avenue as their approach to water and energy conservation is impressive. It is a 2-bedroom bungalow with both Pauline & Alan at home most days, but their water consumption is equivalent to less than one person in a one-bedroom property, so how do they do it?

Go along and see just how simple it is to achieve, through eco appliances and settings, water butts and a conscious choice to use mains water at a minimum.

They also have solar PV panels, which will be paid back by 2021 and were only installed 3 years ago, allowing them the luxury of being guilt and carbon free as they power their home needs. What would you like to power without having to worry about the long-term costs?

And let’s not forget their zero-cost built shed, and their home-made pond, costing them just the liner as the rest was created from materials left around the property, from other home improvements. 

This is a cosy, comfortable and environmentally positive home that exudes efficiency and yet has come together from a make do and mend philosophy using and reusing everything. A family home anyone would want to visit and stay in!

Come and talk to Pauline and Alan… Be wowed by simplistic efficiency. 

You will want to do what they have done….
