THERE was a brilliant turnout at The Cape passata making day and the launch of some of The Cape’s zero energy bill homes.
Around 600 people visited The Cape throughout the day, showing great interest in the five sustainable open homes – homes that are super energy efficient, comfortable to live in, allow people to eliminate energy bills and experience the effortless comfort of passive solar, carbon neutral living.
The teams from TS Constructions, Beaumont Concepts, Adapt Design Group, The Sociable Weaver were alongside many current and future residents making the general public welcome and sharing information.
The festival atmosphere was enhanced by young local musicians and artists from Bass Coast showing their talent in the various homes and wonderful passata making by the guest chef Mara Ripani.
Tony O’Connell from TS Constructions described the CORE 9 house as both economical and sustainable house.
“CORE 9 is a completely new design that’s been designed by Beaumont Concepts. CORE is an acronym for Carbon positive, zerO waste, Recyclable and Economical.”
“It has almost zero running costs, which means you spend a bit more on your build and for the rest of your life the house pays for itself basically, or returns on the earlier investment.”
Visitors came from New South Wales, Warrnambool, Melbourne, Latrobe Valley, Gippsland and the Bass Coast area, which indicates there is strong interest in better performing energy efficient homes.
Cape Stage 2 is now more than 50 per cent sold with roads, parks and wetlands under construction, and some wonderful home sites being built with views over the Bass Strait towards Cape Woolamai in the East and Mt Oberon/Wilsons Promontory in the west.
If you are interested in joining a great modern, well designed community and securing an affordable townhouse site or a lovely ocean view site that can never be built out in a great part of Victoria’s coast, don’t wait too long as they are being snapped up.
Zero bills, great interest at The Cape
