This home demonstrates a practical approach to "building green". The approach started with a reduced demand for energy and water through efficient appliances, equipment and fixtures, increased insulation, conscientious siting and orientation, and design of passive cooling devices such as overhangs, porches, and a cooling tower. The approach continued with research and purchase of both structural and finish materials that achieved the least impact to the environment and health of occupants through the manufacturing to disposal life cycle. In general, this included renewable and natural materials with low offgassing potential, engineered lumber, recycled materials, and those with low maintenance requirements and high durability.
