Designing homes for the future

Your Home is Australia’s independent guide to designing, building or renovating homes to ensure they are energy efficient, comfortable, affordable and adaptable for the future.

Your Home was first published in 2001 as a technical manual and website, providing expert advice on sustainable building practices for the building and design industries. Now in its 6th edition, Your Home has been regularly reviewed and improved to ensure the content remains comprehensive, accurate and up to date with current best practice.

Today, a broad audience uses Your Home, including householders, builders, designers, architects, students, researchers and policy makers. We hope that you too find Your Home useful in helping to design, build and live in a sustainable and energy-efficient home.
