How To Use Your House

We think we are all really lucky to live in such beautifully designed homes that have many ‘green’ features. Some of those features were new to many of us, so we have put together these simple and non-technical user guides to our homes. 

We have based this very general guidance on our experiences and research. While many features of our homes are the same, there are also quite a lot of variations, so you may find differences in your place. However, we hope this guide gives you a good starting point. It is offered to you in the spirit of neighbourliness and community -- we obviously can’t accept any liability for actions you take based on these guides! 

We welcome further questions and your feedback. Please email amandampotts58@gmail.com.
