Bookings are now open for the 7th annual Open Eco Homes Event, which will take place on Sunday 18th and Saturday 24th September 2016. Highlights this year include a co-housing development in North Cambridge, a new build kit house, a low cost natural DIY insulation workshop using Hempcrete and a St John’s College student house, retrofitted to the highest standards.
In total 15 low energy homes – both new and retrofit – will open their doors for Open Eco Homes. Householders will show and explain the energy-saving features of their homes – the pros and cons, and also how to get the best out of them. Visitors find out how to make their homes cosier whilst saving energy and carbon emissions.
Booking options and case studies of each house can be found at openecohomes.org. Each tour is free and lasts about an hour. Booking is required.
All Day Sunday 18th Sep 2016 - Saturday 24th Sep 2016
