DWELL - Green Issue

'Echo-Logical' by Frances Anderton ‘The main objective with the renovation was to make the house as energy efficient and nontoxic as possible. The house does have air-conditioning, but they maximized cross ventilation by installing windows on all sides. They installed a tank less water heater and solar paneling on the flat roof, which provides 50 percent of the energy; they laid bamboo flooring on the second level, built closet doors of recycled plastic, and constructed decks out of sustainable wood treated with nontoxic sealant. No-VOC Yolo paints were used throughout the house. And, at around 2,000 square-feet, they kept the whole project at a relatively modest size.’
