Dean Buckeridge has been designing energy efficient, passive solar homes in Christchurch for as long as I’ve can remember. Along with Russell Devlin, and Bob Burnett, I hold Dean in high regard for leadership in this field. It’s great to see the rest of the market finally starting to demand more of their knowledge and skills.
In this episode of Home Style Green, we discuss why asthma is the norm in Kiwi kids, how thermal mass can go wrong, the economics of spending a bit more up front, the problem with teenage daughter and having cosy feet.
Dean is also involved with MagRoc. Find out about the benefits of this exciting new product.

What's a fast, inexpensive way to build that can result in high performance homes?
It is of course, prefab. And this week I talk with Melissa Savage from Metrapanel.
I'd love to get your questions, comments and feedback:
