For the holiday maker interested in what Golden Bay Hideaway has to offer, Little Greenie may appear to be just another modern, professionally finished house with stunning views in a beautiful location. Of course everyone will notice some differences sooner or later, but those interested in environmental technology and smart building will find the differences go right down to the foundations.Little Greenie is designed with four major principles in mind: Energy efficiency, low maintenance/longevity, ease of construction and value for money. It may be modern, but it’s not about frills or fashion; and while it is unashamedly utilitarian, it’s definitely not drab or boring.Brand new, passive solar, off-grid, low energy eco home with an unbeatable view and total privacy. 9star HERS rating out of 10 (Home Energy Rating System). No other home in New Zealand has been awarded a nine before!Little Greenie is the show home of Eco-action Design and Build.
