A case study for those contemplating a ‘green’ home make over!
The trend for green homes is gathering momentum on South Africa. With green materials and technologies become more available and affordable, one man has decided to take the ‘green journey’ approach to a home renovation in Lakeside. LLoyd Macfarlene has attempted to lower the footprint and increase the performance of his family home.
LLoyd was familiar with green building practices and worked in the broader sector of sustainability for almost 10 years. He decided to put his knowledge and patience to the test by embarking in a self-build green renovation of a 1960’s house that was in need of renovation but perfectly positioned in Lakeside Mountain Range.
After the home was purchased, the family moved in for a few months before the renovation began so that they could design through a living experience.
