Recently included in the NZIA sustainability seminar series and designed to meet the Living Building Challenge seminar, work has started on our first Green Hut. This low energy house has been registered in America with the Living Building Challenge team to achieve Net Zero Energy. The building needs to generate enough energy to meet the needs of the occupant. To find out more about the challenge visit their website (http://living-future.org/lbc)
Follow us here on the Black Hut blog as we share our journey building the house, and then monitoring the performance for 12 months to achieve certification. Its plans are now for sale for anyone else keen to take up the challenge.
