[Video] Anatomy of a Green Renovation

If you have time, you can sit through all ten of these episodes and really soak in some excellent information.  In Dwell’s first web video series, Building Green in Harlem, the modern magazine company followed David and Alysia as they renovated a brownstone into a modern, sustainable home.  For some reason, the last and final video, Episode 10, which I’ve gone ahead and embedded above for your Friday viewing pleasure, isn’t on the Dwell website with the others.  It is on GreenStreet‘s website; GreenStreet was the design/build team for the project.  The above video shows what they were able to accomplish, and videos like this give people an idea of what can honestly be expected in a green rehab.  Here: open, light, airy, modern.
