Sustainable Home Updates - What you need to know

Hello! This is Episode 224, and in it, I’m going to be doing an update to one of Year 3’s most popular episodes and continuing our celebration of 5 years of the “Get it Right” podcast. In the last episode, I shared a reboot of the most popular episode from Year 3 of the podcast. It was from Season 10, which was called “Industry Insiders”. And the episode was my conversation with Jenny Edwards and Sarah Lebner from Light House Architecture + Science. In it, we dived into some fantastic and actionable information on how to create a sustainable home in a really pragmatic and straight-forward way. If you haven’t listened to the reboot of that episode, it’s definitely worth checking it out. You can find it at and there’s a free downloadable transcript available as well. Year 3 of the podcast was a varied one, where we covered a huge range of topics. It began with the tail end of Season 8 on the podcast, which is called “A Simple Guide to a Sustainable Home”.   Season 9 was a special video and audio series called “Keeping it Real” where I dived into some of the commonly held beliefs about renovating and building, especially when it comes to reality TV and online media, and the mindset issues that I see surprise homeowners in their own projects.  And then Season 10, which was the Industry Insiders season, plus we snuck in a few episodes of Season 11, the Interior Design Basics Season. So many great episodes on such helpful topics and know-how for any project.  If you are new to the podcast and haven’t familiarised yourself with all of that content, I’d really encourage you to do so. You can find a full index of all our episodes by heading to In this episode, I’m going to provide you with some updates on where the industry is at, and specific regulations and help that can support you in achieving greater sustainability in your future home. At the time of recording this episode, it’s late 2021, and there’s some significant changes coming to Australian regulations, and this is happening worldwide, as the urgency of industry change is ever more present. I also want to remind you, that whilst ‘sustainable’ may be interpreted as environmentally friendly, or ‘green’ in design and construction, it actually incorporates a lot more as a concept. So when you think about sustainability, think broadly about all things you can do to create a home that meets your current needs, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
