West Dorset Open EcoHomes

10 - 18 Sep 2016

We are opening fifteen homes around Bridport, Dorchester, Beaminster and Lyme Regis, some off grid, some new builds, one straw bale extension, a few retrofits,and a lot of enthusiasm among the hosts (and visitors we hope). Low carbon lifestyles are as important as the buildings.
