SUSTAINABLE DESIGN OUTCOMES
We know good sustainable design, and you may be surprised, but our homes come standard with a number of sustainable practices or elements already included in your price!
There are some simple, non expensive elements that improves the energy rating of your home that can save you money over time.
Before we design your home, think about the way you currently live, and how you could improve the home efficiencies. Ask yourself a few questions
• Does it get overly hot or cold in certain rooms?
• Or maybe your electricity bills are continuing to rise?
• Have you got insulation in your roof or walls?
• Are there fans throughout?
• Are your water bills excessive?
Depending on where your house is located, thermal mass is a way of improving the comfort levels in your home. Put simply, thermal mass is a dense material such and concrete or brick that is used to store warmth in the winter, and cool in the summer. In winter it works by storing warmth from either direct exposure to the sun or from heating within the home during the day, and releasing it back into the house at night. In summer it works in the reverse way, by avoiding exposing the thermal mass to a heat source during the day, night breezes are allowed to pass over or past the thermal mass drawing out the stored heat.

considerations when building your new home
The land that you already own might be the missing piece of the puzzle that will help you to achieve your financial goals.
Many homeowners in Perth believe their block is too difficult or too awkward for a second building.
But, at Thompson Sustainable Homes we’re experts at designing buildings for narrow and steep blocks, even those with difficult access or unwieldy shapes.
Whatever the challenges of your land, we will work with our surveyors and engineers to create a plan that will maximise your investment.
If you have a block in mind for a new residential building, we’ll determine the relevant Residential Planning Codes (R-Codes) and let you know what’s possible. Call Thompson Sustainable Homes WA on 1300 90 40 40.
