Christchurch Exemplar Homes FREE Self-Guided Tour 2017

For one month this May, people will be able to step inside beautiful homes that are among the greenest in New Zealand; homes that have low or no power bills, collect and reuse water and use solar energy to power the house and the owners’ cars.

The 2017 Examplar Homes Tour is co-sponsored by Superhome Movement and Christchurch City Council Build Back Smarter. Recreating last year’s success, come and see the innovations and cleaver designs of ten of Christchurch’s most innovative, sustainable ‘Superhomes’. Free self-guided tours every Saturday and Sunday from 11-4pm this May. Don’t miss out the opportunity of visiting these wonderful show homes this May, and talk to some of the Architects and Contractors whom made these homes special and possible!   Click here to download the 2017 Tour Map
