More on GREEN LIVING

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lazarus Realty

This is a follow up to my last blog.  There  is an article in the Wall Street Journal today title The Green House of the Future in which four architects provide illustrations of what Green Homes of the future might look like.  The article concludes with all four architects in agreement on one thing (when you see the pictures you will agree it certainly was NOT design..lol) and that is Americans need to learn to live in smaller spaces if we are going to make an impact on the environment.

When I look at the designs I wonder who is going to be able to afford those things.  And it might just be me but the homes in the illustrations look HUGE.

Personally, I think think all of their concept homes are trumped by this design:

COB HOMES

These homes have been used for centuries and are far less complicated than any of the hair-brain ideas being offered by the futurist architects.

Unfortunately, there aren't any of these available in Fresno.  If there were, I would "specialize" in them :). I love 'em.

If you would like to buy some land to build your own home in the Fresno / Clovis area I can help.  I also sell the stick-built McMansions that most of us are stuck in ;)
