On Saturday, 2 and Friday, 8 November, environmentally-friendly homeowners across the country will open their doors to visitors. The seventh edition of the Nationale Duurzame Huizen (National Sustainable Houses) Route takes place on those two days.
Eindhoven is taking part for the first time this year. Whether it be roof insulation, a solar water heater, or making your home gas-free – every factor counts. Do you own such a home? You can offer to open your home by filling in this registration form.
The Duurzame Huizen Route is a platform for people looking for ideas and information about eco-friendly homes. More than 1,300 homeowners share their experiences via www.duurzamehuizenroute.nl. Visitors to the site can not just gain know-how; they can also ask questions.
Get a first-hand look
You can also get inspired by visiting one or more of these houses on 2 and 9 November. The homeowners enjoy sharing how they came to make their specific choices to meet the required specifications. And how things work in practice.
Duurzame Huizen Route’s yearly reports show that 86% of the visitors want to apply the knowledge they gained to their own homes. In 2018, more than 500 homeowners opened their doors to more than 5,000 visitors.
If you want to visit one of the houses on the Duurzame Huizen Route, you can register on the website from Monday, 7 October.
