Rated 4 out of 5 by Building with Awareness... It was not exactly what I expected. I was looking for just advice on various ways to incorporate green technology into an existing structure. However if your looking for a very detailed video in building a green home this is video for you. Eventually I may still be using it to build in our sustainable community. July 13, 2011
