Want to simplify sustainable home design and construction?
Learn the most important and actionable things to do in your sustainable home design and construction.
Hello! This is Episode 223, and in it, I’m going to be sharing one of Year 3’s most popular episodes and continuing our celebration of 5 years of the “Get it Right” podcast.
This episode was from Season 10 of the podcast, which was called “Industry Insiders”.
Season 10 is a great season on the podcast, packed full of conversations I had with industry professionals from both Australia and the USA. If you haven’t listened to it, I’d encourage you to check it out. We had a fantastic range of guests with loads of expertise to share.
This rebooted episode was Episode 4 of that Season, and it’s a conversation with Jenny Edwards and Sarah Lebner, from Light House Architecture + Science.
These incredible women are both passionate about great design, sustainable homes, and achieving both in an affordable and accessible way.
And they’re both amazing in the advocacy and education work they do to assist homeowners and industry colleagues well beyond their client base. It’s a great conversation jam packed with actionable info.
Now, let’s dive in!
It really excites me to see how many people are now taking sustainability seriously in creating their future homes.
I’m sure it has something to do with the kinds of amazing humans that are in the Undercover Architect community.
I have people tell me all the time that the market isn’t asking for sustainable homes, hence they’re not doing them.
Yep, still in late 2021, with all the warnings we have about climate change and the urgency with which we need to act, industry colleagues are telling me that you, the homeowner, don’t want sustainability.
Of course, I keep telling them that’s not my experience in the slightest.
So, for those of us passionate about sustainability in home design, renovating and building, we have to keep asking, demanding and making ourselves heard.
The residential construction industry is a slow, slow, slow moving beast that, in many parts – not all parts – but in many parts, really resists innovation.
So, I’m really glad you’re here and learning more about sustainability for your future home.
Because it’s customer demand that will keep driving change, and enable us to create homes that not only make our lives better, but also help make the planet better too.
This conversation with Jenny Edwards and Sarah Lebner from Light House Architecture and Science is a great one.
I’ve put the full episode in, so you can hear their bios and learn more about them if you’re not familiar with them or the work they do.
In this episode, Jenny and Sarah provide actionable tips and methods for you to craft a project team and experience, so you can achieve sustainability in an affordable way.
