Summary

Kohler Sustainable Design - Built Green - Hillside Home On a steep lot that was initially considered to be unbuildable, a dedicated team of design professionals produced the first LEED-certified-Platinum home in Marin County, California. Nice trick. But how did they do it? www.us.kohler.com Like good magicians, the team took care to keep the backstage machinery well out of the spotlight. As builder Michael McDonald says, "We try to make the sustainability aspect of it disappear." That artfully hidden green technology includes in-floor hydronic heating, a solar array that provides 60 percent of the home's electricity, LED lighting, cabinetry and floors made from sustainably harvested woods -even the roof is made of recycled metals. Take a revealing look behind the scenes at a home that stands at the very apex of sustainable design. From: kohler Views: 592 0 ratings Time: 04:37 More in Science & Technology READ MORE
