Background:
The concept for Blue Mount Rise was conceived in 2003. Back then it was relatively uncommon to consider building an energy efficient home (minimum 6-star energy rating) and harvesting rainwater to reduce the reliance on externally supplied water resources.

The Blue Mount Rise Design Guidelines were created in 2004 by leading Sustainability Architects, Sunpower Design , to help the original purchasers of land achieve a beautiful, energy efficient home. They remain as relevant today as 15 years ago because they are based on timeless, sensible design principles.

In 2019, we have a collective sense of urgency in reducing the size of the footprints (especially carbon footprints) we leave on our planet. It is intuitively obvious to most people that designing a home to use less energy and water makes good economic sense as well as being good for the environment.

Values:
New buyers will ideally share the Blue Mount Rise values of sustainability and environmental responsibility. Ten homes have been built to date, each expressing these values in their unique way.
