"Green Real Esate is really starting to take off. It makes sense that ecologically friendly homes would be a big hit in the Berkeley, San Francisco Bay Area. At a home inspection yesterday the inspector had just come fronm a house made of hay bails. Stacked, supported by rebar and stucoed around the outside, it was the perfect home. No termite damage, moisture, rot....NOTHING. "Green" seems to be the word of the day, with Al Gore, global warming and higher energy costs to boot, its well woth it.
