Is rainwater in the city safe to drink?

Do solar panels last?

Can a garden cope with 1 000 000 litres of treated sewage?

In 1996 Michael Mobbs renovated his inner-city Sydney terrace making it almost entirely self-sufficient in energy, water and waste disposal. Find out how he did it, what worked, what didn't, and what he'd do differently today in this fully updated 2nd edition.

Including Australian and international examples of sustainable building, this book is packed with practical information to help every home renovator or builder:

  • get plans through council
  • brief architects and builders
  • save energy and water
  • choose and install a rainwater tank and solar power system
  • reuse waste water in the house and garden
  • choose the best sustainable systems, products and suppliers
