Hockerton Housing Project homes 

About Us

Hockerton Housing Project is a community business and a self-sufficient co-housing development. Our mission is to, by practical example, act as a catalyst for change towards ecologically sound and sustainable ways of living.

We run a not-for-profit co-operative which hosts tours and courses for all ages, and provides consultancy services to help others deliver sustainability in their home, community or workplace.

Our earth-sheltered homes are built with high thermal mass and high levels of insulation to eliminate the need for heating systems. Residents of the five houses generate their own clean energy to meet their remaining energy needs. We also grow most of their own food, harvest our own water and recycle waste materials.

One of our residents, Bill Bolton operates an aerial video and photgraphy company, BuzzPix and has taken to the skies with his helicam to shoot the homes from a different perspective, a perfect way to showcase our unique eco houses and supporting renewable systems in their beautiful surroundings.
