Hello, I’m Maurice Beinat. I’m Technical Director at ecoMaster; and together with my wife Lyn, we started ecoMaster quite some years ago. I’m standing now on our property in the Macedon Ranges, and this is actually the reason that we started ecoMaster.
When we moved into our beautiful home here, we discovered that it was mightily uncomfortable, freezing cold in the winter, almost unheatable, but more to the point, it was an environmental disaster – emitting more than twice the average household carbon just from the living room. That was a motivating factor for us to start making some changes.
So I’d like to take you now on a tour of our home, but more than that, I’d like to take you on a journey of testing, trial and error, development and just everything that we went through to making our home from a 1.5 star home into a 7.6 star home. And I very much hope that in this journey, you might find some things that you can implement in your own home.
Let’s get started now.
