Sometimes the images just don’t tell the whole story and that’s where some quality video will do the trick.  I stumbled upon this video while doing research for a prior story and was blown away by the modern, green home.  It’s ridiculous — probably a dream residence for many of you out there.  The passive design, combined with good insulation, high performance glass, solar thermal panels, radiant flooring heating, and an efficient system, keeps this home operating very efficiently. 

The modern green elements such as Zodiaq GreenGuard certified counters, Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, transom windows, 3Form panels, recycled glass tiles, Cor-Ten siding, drought tolerant landscaping, and plush artificial lawns make this swank dwelling a bona fide knockout.  Happy Friday and enjoy the video!
