{ else }   Blog: Building Green and save big bucks? Straw Bales walls!!  

There are Video clips to watch:)

Join us for Season One of Building Green and follow the adventures of host Kevin Contreras as he builds his dream house—out of $2600 worth of straw. The hills of Santa Barbara, CA, where Kevin lives, do not exactly scream eco-village—what will the neighbors say?--but Kevin is determined that his new home will not only keep up with the Joneses, but make them green with envy.

    Austin

  • OVERVIEW | HOUSE PROJECTS | THIS OLD HOUSE Beginning February 8 on PBS, tune in to This Old House for this unprecedented ... The Austin Green Building Program, one of the oldest in the country, ...www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/tvprograms/houseproject/overview/0,16542,1546552,0...

    The architecture may be old at This Old House's new project in Austin, Texas, but the thinking is thoroughly modern. For the first time, the show is going totally "green"—using as many environmentally friendly building products and methods as possible—and creating a functional home for a contemporary blended family.

    That energy-saving mentality is one reason for their desire for a green renovation. Austin, a young, tech-company town and one of the fastest growing cities in America, is at the forefront of the green movement. The Austin Green Building Program, one of the oldest in the country, will rate the project for its use of eco-friendly materials. Photovoltaic cells on the roof, rainwater collection for irrigation, spray-foam insulation, recycled-glass tile and countertops, and formaldehyde-free wood composites are just some of the resource-saving strategies and eco-friendly materials planned for the project.

    That said, there are many things about the house's original design that the couple plans to preserve and honor. Built before the days of hulking McMansions with 24/7 air-conditioning, the compact house was built to use natural air flow, high rooflines, and deep overhanging eaves to keep the heat at bay.
