Do You Think Sustainability is More Than Solar Panels and Being Environmentally Friendly?
I agree that a sustainable home should be environmentally friendly. Sustainability by definition though goes far beyond that in my opinion.
A sustainable home does more than just use products and building methods that sustain the environment. Your home can also be built (or renovated) to better sustain your health, your comfort, and your finances.
The mission of Sustainable Home Catalyst is to promote awareness of the many ways that a sustainable home can benefit not only the environment, but also the occupants of the occupants of the home.
Are You Looking For Ways to Make Your Home More Sustainable?
Well, You've Come to the Right Place!
I'm not just going to fill your mind with warm and fluffy ideas about sustainability.
My goal is to provide you with practical advice that you can apply to your home.
Many sustainable home concepts are best applied during the design and construction phase of a home. Don't lose hope though. There is always something that you can do to make your current home sustainable as well.
My goal is to provide you with the basic concepts that make a home sustainable. I will then build upon those concepts with as many practical, cost effective solutions as possible to make your current or future home more sustainable.

I founded Sustainable Home Catalyst with the desire to spread the gospel of sustainable home concepts and technologies.
I am an architectural technologist by training with extensive experience in building science.
My varied background from the different jobs I have had has given me a great understanding of the different systems within buildings, how they all work together and how homes can be made to be more sustainable. My background includes researching and developing sustainable home technologies and products, working as an aircraft maintenance engineer, cabinet making, concrete work, and welding.
I have been passionate about architecture and sustainable home concepts from a young age. My hope is to share this passion with you through Sustainable Home Catalyst.
