At Blue Eco Homes, we’re passionate about sustainable homes, both during construction and while you live in them! We believe that living sustainably is better for you, your family and the environment. We build comfortable and healthy homes that our clients love living in.
We’re proud to introduce our new range of Concept Home Designs!
Intentioned to enable more people to build their dream sustainable home, each of our concept homes can be customised or adjusted to suit your land, budget or needs. Whether you value entertaining, need to accommodate a large family, like simple living or have an unusual block of land – we can work with you to create a home you will love living in.
Our Concept Home Design options are featured below and can be built to the following sustainable design and construction standards:
An Environmental Home is designed to solar passive design principles, with a focus on the efficient use of ‘energy, water, and building materials. This results in a reduced carbon footprint and lower energy needs. To build a home using solar passive design principles, there is the need for certain land or climate conditions.
A Healthy Home can help to provide a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. To improve the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities, there can hardly be a more important place to start than the home. Healthy Homes use specific construction methods and materials to reduce the risk of condensation, mould, electromagnetic fields and other risks to your health.
After all, our homes, both the location and physical building itself, influences almost every aspect of our lives – from how well we sleep, to how often we see friends, to how safe and secure we feel.
A passive house is a home built using rigorous standards for energy efficiency, combined with the above Environmental and Healthy Home principles.
Passive home building aims to achieve quantifiable energy efficiency as well as comfort, through various design principles such as extreme air tightness, continuous insulation, and high-performance windows and doors. While reducing environmental impact, residents of a passive house will enjoy excellent indoor air quality and temperature, as well.
