CAT's Whole Home demonstrates simple ways to make a household more sustainable, for instance by installing insulation, managing waste, reducing car use, buying local organic food, saving water and switching to a green energy tariff.
A modern interior complete with eco-friendly domestic appliances and household products provides a backdrop for exploring ways of lessening your home's environmental impact. There is a short film about sustainable living available on the house's computer.
Outside, the Suburban Garden has been designed to fulfill many different purposes: a lawn for recreation, natural habitats for birds and animals, composting and rainwater harvesting facilities, and space for growing food.
This display is located in a building built in 1976 as an experimental prototype by Wates Homes. It is to this day the most insulated house in Britain. The house is 'super-insulated': it has 450mm of Rockwool insulation in the roof, floors and external walls and quadruple-glazed windows!
