Join us to hear directly from Dr. Josh Byrne, from Gardening Australia, about the design & science behind Josh’s house – a sustainable solar passive designed home built in the leafy suburb of Hilton, WA.

We’ll be reflecting on the performance of his home based on the data he has mapped over several years, and hear his insights and reflections on this fantastic passion project, which has become his family home. Does he wish he could change anything design wise about his home, after living in it over several seasons?

Josh has documented his journey in excellent bite sized videos, which he has made available on online and has recently published a book about his experience designing and living in Josh’s house.

So grab a glass of your finest wine (or a cup of tea) and tune into this webinar in the lead up to sustainable house day, which is one you shouldn’t miss.
