Lyneham House Tour

SEE-Change toured this Lyneham house in April 2015 as part of the Sustainable House Tours program.

This 1982 townhouse was architecturally DIY renovated and features:

  • recycled hand made timber benches
  • north facing windows with tiles for thermal mass
  • pelmets and heavy curtains
  • recycled tiles in the bathroom
  • recycled fittings in the kitchen; and
  • a small courtyard to grow and compost food.
