50 Arthur Street - Garth and Liz Le Roy

This house has been designed and constructed using "Passive House" principles.  Encompassing the idea of a well insulated, sun oriented for good solar gain.  Providing a home that requires very little energy input (around 1.5 - 2.5kw) to ensure an even temperature in all areas 24 hours a day all year round.  This achieves a very low energy use home.  The owner will be onsite to discuss these principles and processes should anyone be interested.

The garden has been a fifteen year project year project starting with tree planting in 2005.  With a vision of an inner city retreat.  Viewed from upstairs the garden is made up of varying sized circles, a colourfull living wall and quirky topiary animals.  Throughout the Home and garden Tour there will be visiting musicians playing in the garden and inside the music room.  Over the two days there will be entertainers playing piano, flute. saxophone, harp, The Dixieland Band and The Bay City Big Band.
