Home Comforts – new home guide

The Sustaining our Towns Home Comforts magazine has been developed to help you create a new home that’s comfortable and stylish.   Produced locally, Home Comforts explains some of the easiest and most affordable methods of ensuring a luxurious lifestyle in South East New South Wales.

With rising energy costs it’s clever to pay attention to your home design. Working with the sun, using cooling breezes, choosing the right insulation and thinking about energy efficiency are all smart choices. Good design makes sense, but now all the ideas are showcased clearly so you can work with your designer to create a home that’s more enjoyable to live in.

Home Comforts also explains what you need to consider when buying land and building a home. In plain language you can read about BASIX, managing bushfire risk and council planning requirements.

Printed copies of the Home Comforts magazine available from your local Council, or download Home Comforts 2012 as a 3MB PDF.
