The SUSTAINABLE, OFF-GRID, WATER SAVING and RECYCLING aspects also began long ago.
I installed a gas stove followed by solar geysers. This made a huge difference to the electricity consumption. Next the water tanks to store water were installed. Then I made the huge step to install a solar PV system complete with inverters, etc., to achieve an off-grid status. The water re-structuring and enlivening Spyralyx system was installed on the mains inlet so it feeds both the house and garden.
The various recycling and composting systems were implemented such as a Green Beanie for the kitchen waste sealed off at the ground so as not to encourage rats, worm farms, Bokashi bins and main compost heaps.
This meant that my contribution to land fill dramatically reduced to almost nil. I did not have the expense of garden refuse removal any longer, I had reduced the need to buy compost and was able to make nutrient dense compost from which I grow nutrient dense food I eat.
The GREEN RENOVATIONS to the home aimed to create a living space which was light, open, had a geometric shape and where one felt close and connected to nature. This architecture also allows for passive heating in winter and is heated with a cost-effective pellet burner in winter. The floor was removed to allow for insulation and underwater heated piping. The glass is coated with a low emission material to keep the heat in. All the building from the floor to the ceiling meets SANS regulations for ’Green Buildings’. Harmless chemical-free household cleaning and body products are used to minimise exposure to toxic compounds.
