Building Green Part 1

February 14th, 2010 | by ADMIN |

Are you remodeling your home? Our friends Steve and JD did a great looking renovation. What made it something special was the fact that it was done using green home products and environmentally friendly processes. Reusing what they could, recycling what they didn’t need, FSC Certified wood, reclaimed flooring, soy based wall insulation, solar water heating and electricity, recycled rubber roofing, and the list goes on and on. We documented the progress over a year, and put together a 17 minute video from start to end of the construction. Hope you enjoy “Building Green”

    My husband and I are under a COURT ORDER not to mention the names of the foster parents of our daughter Sabrina, who was taken from us by Arlington County CPS under false allegations of child neglect, so how is it that her foster parents are allowed to post this video of themselves with our daughter where they use their own names?

    Wow! A lot of work went into that – good thing they had the spare time. Terrific to make homes that work better for the environment AND the owners. I hope this is part of a trend toward a new kind of home building approach.

    indeed!
    You can’t have your cake and eat it to. If you
    want to live a safe little yuppy life sucking
    off the teat of the system then you need to
    own up to the fact that you’re helping destroy
    the [livable] planet.

    Well, even if this can’t get on TV, I think anyone teaching a course about the environment should use this video. I intend to show your videos to my own students soon. Your video does a better job of explaining and demonstrating the reality than I could by drawing on a blackboard!

    Thanks, the home is in Arlington, Virginia. We tried to get commercial broadcast, but most are looking for a series not an individual piece. Anyway, thanks for the kind words.

    I’m thoroughly impressed. The story is well told, instructive, inspiring, well shot and cut, plus nice soundtracking. I’m about to watch part 2…do you have a broadcaster? This should definitely on the air. Where is this home located?
