Building Local

Feb. 24, 2012
Categorized in: New Construction
Tagged with: 100 mile diet, build, house, locavore

Many of you will have heard about the 100-Mile diet, a diet where you eat only foods produced within a 100 mile radius of where you live.

Now some are moving beyond food with the locavore label. Why not build a house entirely of materials available within 100 miles of your location?

Imagine a house built without anything from China! It's been done.

Could you do it? Would you do it?

Green Matters

Mar. 20, 2008
Categorized in: Green Building

With energy prices high and potentially going higher, many of us have already replaced all those standard light bulbs in our homes with CFLs. What now?

I've found a great web site that has a few ideas on that score!

Green Matters has easy, practical tips for things to do around your home to save energy. If you take a look at their Green Guide you'll get a wide range of ideas, with more to come. I'd be surprised if there's anyone who can't find one new idea on this web site.
