Resources include an online suite of floor plans and elevations, designed for a minimum 7-star energy efficiency that help Australians save both energy and money, regardless of where they live. Floor plans have been drawn for every city in Australia, in three versions to accommodate for block size, and construction techniques specifically for single storey dwellings. See Melbourne’s YourHome plan here.

The designs have 7 key areas of focus for energy efficiency and reducing cost:

  1. Climate
  2. Natural ventilation
  3. Orientation
  4. Natural light
  5. Sun shade
  6. Liveability
  7. Thinking local
