Eco Home Tours

What makes a house an eco-sustainable home?

Join us for a casual Sunday afternoon tour of an owner-built hempcrete home set on a suburban block in a quiet village in Northern Tasmania.

Sunday July 28th 2024

Only up to ten adults per tour means a very personal insight can be given and leaves plenty of time for questions.

We have a short introductory video that tells the story of the building of our hempcrete home


Sean and Mandy settled in Northern Tasmania in 2008 after many years of travelling and working across Australia.

They first renovated a 1950s weatherboard house using sustainable techniques and materials. This was followed by a rental property renovated in the same way.

After being introduced to the properties of hempcrete they decided if the right block came up for sale they would downsize and owner build a small hempcrete home.

The right block did eventuate and the building process started in 2019. They moved into the house in late 2020.

In 2021 Sean and Mandy decided to start running eco home and lifestyle tours.

The two renovations and the build were all documented on our informative blogs. Click here for blogs.

Eco home and lifestyle tours

If you have a passion for sustainable living, want to find out more about living in a home built from natural materials, love upcycling, or just want to have a sticky beak then our casual Sunday eco home tours are a perfect way to spend an hour or so.

Our home is built from hempcrete and uses natural finishes where possible to create a very eco-friendly home. We owner built the house from 2019 to 2021.
