This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Stand 47 in Monahan Farm, north of Johannesburg. It is an eco-friendly home that makes use of various methods of construction, insulation & energy efficiency to be as green as possible. Our visit was part of the #Wintertest allowing visitors to get a real feel for how the home is laid out and most importantly how it stays warm and toasty when it’s cold outside.
The purpose of the open house is to expose the public to the different options available on the market to make their homes greener, more energy efficient and sustainable. This applies to those intending to build a green home from scratch, those extending or renovating an existing home.
Check out this video I put together of the visit for more information & contact details of the organisers.
