Green Homes To Build

bricks

Welcome to our  ‘Green Homes to Build’ listing. Here you can find highly energy efficient and sustainable homes that you can get ‘off the shelf’ AND with a builder who can build it for you in their local area.

All homes on this list are a minimum of 7 Star Thermal Performance Rating which means they are over and above the current legal requirements for efficiency.  These homes are the future of building, would be very comfortable and cost effective to live in, and have a better resale value in future than traditional, more inefficient homes.

See what’s available in your state or territory here. Prices are house only and do not include land.
