NATIMUK home owner Alan Obst has registered his energy efficient home for national Sustainable House Day on Sunday. 

Mr Obst said his home at 6 Lake Road, Natimuk, would be opened from 10am to 4pm on Sunday for visitors to view and learn about sustainable design features. 

“The tours are about educating people on the principles of solar features and sustainable design,” he said.

“It’s a chance to inspire people to build energy efficient homes.”

Three years ago Mr Obst said he committed to the project to research and create a house plan that featured a sustainable design and solar principles suitable to his lifestyle. 

“The biggest hurdle with building an energy efficient home is getting the research and knowledge first,” he said. 

Mr Obst said once people had the knowledge it becomes easier to design.

During Sustainable House Day visitors can access information, view displays and join tours to learn about interior and exterior design features. 

The Australia-wide event highlights homes that use solar passive design, sustainable materials and energy efficient appliances to save on energy costs while providing a comfortable living environment.
