Eco-friendly construction has started to develop across the world in response to the knowledge that buildings can often have a negative impact upon our environment and our natural resources.

An Eco-Home or Eco House is an environmentally low-impact build, that is designed using materials and technology to reduce it’s carbon footprint and lowers it’s energy needs.
