Abstract

The purpose of this research is to develop a new affordable and sustainable green home which focusing on affordability of young generation to have their own house in early age of working. When housing affordability is measured by rent-income ratios based on annual income, affordability must be correlated with income. Moreover, housing will appear to be less affordable for the very young and very old; it will appear to be more affordable to households at the peak of their lifetime income profiles [1] (Quigley J.M & Raphael. S (2004). In addition with the nation's need to fulfill the people housing needs, green sustainable living is also of importance to the government. With global concern on the environment and sustaining the world resources for the future generations, Malaysia has also embarked on initiatives for sustainable development. Green house is one of the best doable efforts that could be taken up for the cause. Incorporating rain-water harvesting system in the housing development is what this research is focusing on. This research then appraises the costing of materials for commercial housing development as possible avenue for cost reduction in the house price. Another element is the management of materials at construction site. It is hoped that out of this research a Commercially Affordable Sustainable House (CASH) module could be developed and later implemented for meeting the country's housing needs and becoming an environmentally responsible country at the same time.
