This May (2014) there will be a huge range of low energy and sustainable homes opening across the UK for interested householders to visit for free. It's a great way to suss out ways to make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy bills.
Many of these events are supported with funding from the Centre for Sustainable Energy, and all the homes are listed on the Green Open Homes website.
Within the East Midlands, there will be our own "Transition West Bridgford" event organising open homes visits in Beeston, West Bridgford, East Leake and Market Bosworth (!). Every home is described in a series of posts below, and also here on the Green Open Homes website.
And we are not the only ones!
There's the "Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Open Homes Week" here - (some of our Transition West Bridgford homes are listed here as well, being in the same geographical area).
Then there's the Nottingham Green Door tour here.
And Loughborough Energy Efficient Homes here.
Or if you are north of Nottingham, then maybe Green Homes Sheffield is closer to hand.
