What makes a Green House “Green.” We will uncover the answers to this question as we build our new home. GreenShortz is known for videos about easy was to be green…and now we are applying that quest to the construction of our new home. This channel will follow the project, talk to experts in the green building and profile the products and techniques that make a home sustainable.
We’ll be incorporating a super-tight building envelope and insulation…install solar power…harvest rainwater…use efficient appliances, fixtures and bulbs…and utilize reuse materials as much a possible.
The house will also seek four green certifications: LEED for Homes, Earthcraft, DOE Zero Energy Ready and Passive House.
