Visit one of the UK's Superhomes!

To state the obvious, we at the Great British Refurb campaign are hassling government and businesses, and indeed all of you, to take action in improving your home energy efficiency and use. But sometimes it's hard to understand what we're aiming for. To picture the end result. Lots of us don't want to live in something that looks 'weird' or too 'out there'. But what we at GBR want everyone to understand is that we're aiming for homes that are simply better quality. With good levels of workmanship on the things that do get done (so important when insulating and considering airtightness, etc). We want homes that are more efficient, cheaper to run and are that bit gentler on the planet.

The Old Home SuperHome network is an alliance of nearly 50 energy efficient exemplar homes which have all been renovated by their owners to save at least 60% of their carbon emissions. Pioneers in the truest sense. The homes range from the smallest of Victorian terraces, to a 17th Century Grade 2 listed thatched cottage.

Many of the homes across the UK will be opening their doors to the public this Sunday 28th March 2010 for the annual Spring Opening to let you see how they have achieved a minimum 60% reduction in their carbon emissions. Each homeowner will explain how they achieved the saving; which techniques proved most beneficial; which installers they used and more importantly whether they would use them again, and of course how much they paid.

To visit a SuperHome log on to www.superhomes.org.uk and see which exemplar properties are local to you. For some you can even use an on-line booking system to attend a specific house tour.

Visit if you get the chance as these are beautiful homes, renovated with a thoughtful purpose and in a thoughtful manner.

Cheers,

Simon
Campaign Director
Great British Refurb
