Casual tours of our super sustainable owner built hempcrete home, set on a suburban block in a quiet village in Northern Tasmania
Sunday 28th August 2022
Only ten adults per tour means a very personal insight can be given.
See below for more details about us and our 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 sustainably. This was followed by a rental property 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 2018. 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.
This short, informative video goes into the thinking behind the owner build as well as the build itself.
