Do you live in a low-energy home?
Would you like to be a volunteer Open Eco Homes host and share your experience with others? Online 'visitors' would love seeing how you've make your home sustainable and comfortable; showing them is really rewarding.
"We were swept away by visitors’ enthusiasm and interest in what we’d done." - OEH Host
See this brief OEH 2020 report
We’re looking for a wide variety of interesting (not perfect!) homes, including:
Comfortable homes that demonstrate different ways of saving energy and cutting carbon emissions. eg:
- low-cost or DIY energy-saving measures
- good insulation & controlled ventilation
- new technologies & renewable energy
- reused & low-carbon building materials
- smart behaviour that saves energy
- integration with a low-carbon lifestyle (food, transport, water use, etc)
We assume Autumn 2021 home tours will still need to be online, rather than face-to-face.
We can support you presenting your home, at a time of your choice in Sept/Oct 2021. Tell your eco-home story and the methods you used - including triumphs and disasters - all useful for others to learn from!
Do you have some good photos? Can you take some video of your home and its features with your phone? We’ll help you with the technology of making a live online presentation, with practice, if you want.
With some facts about your home, we'll create a case study, which becomes great resource for visitors.
Or can you suggest someone else we should ask? contact us
