Heat your home with free energy from the sun!
Imagine being able to heat your home without having to turn on a heater, the Solabode allows you to do this, just using free solar energy. The Solabode is almost totally heated by incorporating careful Passive Solar design, harnessing free energy from sun without the need of mechanical assistance.
A home built with natural and recycled materials!
Imagine a home built without harmful treated timber or toxic materials, the Solabode is built with carefully selected natural and recycled materials. Solabode homes are built with our local Douglas Fir timber and several products made from recycled raw materials, such as Wool insulation and Onduline cladding.
The solid walls inside the Solabode, are built using natural sun dried adobe blocks, made with local clay soils. This heavy thermal mass stores radiant heat from the sun to keep the home warm at night and on cloudy days.
Earth is chosen instead of other materials like concrete, because it has the lowest carbon footprint of all building materials. It has other benefits too, such as regulating humidity levels and neutralising airborne toxins.
