My Pink or is it Green Dream Home

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

In response to janeAnne's Pink Challenge, here is what I would do if money where no object to building my green home:

1. Radiant floor heating -- I've always wanted to live in home with radiant floor heating, living in the Pacific Northwest with the winters can be on cold side and I'm looking forward to radiant floor heating in my home. The water would be heated by electricity which will be free in my new home through the multiple sources listed below.

2. Solar generated electricity -- using the latest in solar technology I will be able to generate electricity to power all of my home including heating water for home use in the winter, and the radiant floor heating system. And Wind power -- also using the latest wind technology, the system would be generating enough electricity to power more than just my home and reselling power back to the utility company to help power my neighbor's homes. It would also be powering my solar Vehicle.

3. Some type of insulation made from recycled newspapers and fire retardant or recycled denim insulation or hempfax insulation

4. Recycled materials as much as possible -- all of them wood that is used to frame and trim the house will come from old lumber that was carefully removed from old houses that were torn down piece by piece rather than knocked over with a bulldozer.

5. Passive Solar including  -- Solar greenhouse/solarium across the southern face of the house and divided into two parts, one to expand the growing season to feed my family organic food, and the other a glassed in family room to enjoy and bring the outdoors in. This room would help heat my home in the winter and keeping cool in the summer.

It it would be designed by a master of incorporating nature in the design - Sunray Kelly

I like the thought of using recycled materials. there is so much waste that goes to the landfills that could be used.
