If you want to see attainable, innovative and practical family living all under one roof, you would like visiting Lydia & David’s home. Through embracing opportunities, technology and being a bit brave, they have managed to combine their desire to be planet friendly with all the comfort and practicality of a busy, modern family lifestyle.

 

What’s different?

They have installed a solar energy battery which stores energy directly from their 9 solar panels and they are putting the finishing touches to their stunning front garden rainwater system.

The rain water garden, has been designed to be aesthetically pleasing as well as providing rain water for all planting. It ensures no rain water is lost, and is enabling them to challenge the perception of how to make best use of your front garden. The high-end design collects rain water from the house and garage roof, channelling it into a beautiful stone water feature that then acts as a storage and irrigation system.

Battery energy storage is a game changer. Would you like to know more? Imagine never having to worry about the rising cost of your energy tariff ever again. The battery stores unused solar energy, which is then fed back into the house when the panels are unable to generate. Their solution is saving them money, allowing them to be in full control of their energy generation and use, while reducing their footprint all at the same time.

If you are looking for inspiration, come along.

Open Sat 21st April 2-5pm, Sun 22nd April 10-1, 2-5pm
