A Community for Sustainable Living
The last unit available for purchase in a showcase eco-village
in the heart of Denmark, Western Australia
The Deco-Village Community developed the DecoHousing Denmark project in partnership with a builder, architects, earthmovers and other professionals, and live there together with a strong sustainability ethos.
This $4.9 million co-housing project is just 250 meters from the centre of town. They took occupancy on September 1, 2018.
Eleven households are now taken up. One family unit waits to be loved.
The last home is available at $540,000
To buy, it is effectively at construction cost because there is no developers profit margin as we were the developers ourselves.
This price includes a share in a 118m2 common house with a large kitchen/dining area, theater and spare room.
The community also shares a large garage/workshop, solar power/batteries, grey-water, rainwater and gardens, orchard and more.
All the 9 star energy-rated duplexed homes are
compact and comfortable, fully self contained
with reticulated nbn/phones and satellite TV.
The homes are built of the innovation wonder
material: hempcrete. Kevin McCloud and others
think hempcrete is unmatched as a building
To achieve our vision, our development company, Deco Living Pty Ltd, teamed with H+H Architects of Albany, AK Homes of Bunbury and Social Enterprise Finance Australia of Sydney, with legal support by Denmark Legal and solar power from DSR Energy. The Sustainable Living Fund of Denmark Community Windfarm Inc. provided a grant towards the innovative data metering / comms control system.
