 Site Considerations - Green Home workshop

This workshop focuses on the environment outside the house, how the house sits in or fits into the environment, and the different zones around the house. Content covered will include the implications of geographical aspects such as wind zones and prevailing directions, soil types, contour, and climate, together with tree placement, shelter belts, landscaping and garden design, poultry, compost, and fruit trees. Other sustainable design considerations with affects on the inside of the house to be covered include rain water tank placement, waste water system location, and shading and cooling in the house relevant to trees and wind.
