The Nature of Things Build Green

In a refreshing hour, Build Green advises making the sun, wind and rain — along with dirt, straw and sewage — your friends. By building a house using innovative practices and materials, you'll not only do the earth a favour, but you could save big bucks too. From retro-fitting a hip, old Montreal housing complex with state-of-the-art sustainable energy systems, to pitching hay for strawbale houses, to building transportable "mini-homes" with their own small power plant, take a close look at the materials and means we can all adopt for building green homes.
