It seems like a major component of green building these days is reducing energy demand and building ultra-low energy homes. For instance, British Columbia-based Jenesys Buildings Corp. built this E Cube house with a superinsulated shell of SIPs in an effort to deliver a home that’s twice as energy efficient as a comparable home built to standard code requirements.
Just outside of Salt Lake City in Emigration Canyon is this modern style home covered in a mixture of Swisspearl, CMU block, and bamboo. The home, located at 5860 Pioneer Ridge Circle, is planted on a 4.82-acre lot and designed by Brian Junge. It's also listed for sale right now for $1,150,000.
