About Us

OWN HOME DESIGN is a GreenSmart professional business. We understand the environment on the Atherton Tablelands - working with it, rather than against it. Your home can be designed environmentally sustainable to suit our conditions. Recommending lightweight construction using timber and/or steel in preference to concrete block, we can offer advice on the use of materials to design a home that is comfortable and healthy to live in. A sustainable house on the Tablelands does not require airconditioning in summer and only a small amount of heating in winter. We know when we can expect the rain and where it is likely to come from. We have a fair idea of how hot it will be in summer and how cold in winter. We know where the sun rises and where it sets, we know it shifts to the North in winter. So, we can use this basic knowledge to apply some basic design principles to position of a house so that you work with nature: shutting the heat of the sun out in summer and welcoming it in winter. Put in some windows to capture the breeze - cooling your home without inviting the mildew in with the rain. From sweltering heat in the middle of a summer day, to crisp cool mornings in winter, the Atherton Tablelands has variable conditions. Endless drizzle and unrelenting south-easterly winds can change to magical clear skies and fresh air before the day is out. But we escape the muggy coastal heat and the lowland flooding and farmers welcome the rain each year. We know what we can expect from the weather, so we can work with it rather than against it when designing our homes.
