Everyone is conscious of wanting to do their bit to cool the planet. More and more we are becoming aware of the importance of buying energy efficient appliances and the term "sustainable" has become the catch cry of our new millennium.

We all know to look for the star ratings on appliances and how to tell if a motor car is fuel efficient, but not many of us are aware of what we can do around the home to ensure that we are using our resources wisely.

With that in mind the WA Housing Centre has taken the initiative in promoting energy efficient homes with a display home in Ellenbrook that is truly the way of the future.

Home in WA is fortunate to get a tour of this amazing home featuring various elements of sustainable building such as Truecore steel which is a 100% recyclable material, which comes preassembled so there is minimal site damage and waste, passive solar design for heating and cooling with solar panels and rainwater harvesting, to name a few.

Tim Underwood from the WA Housing Centre showcases this home of the future to Ross Dunkerton and anyone thinking about building a new home should head to Bundaleer Avenue in Ellenbrook to inspect the very clever design principals of the "vision".
