Low carbon and low cost? Planterwald
I think it’s important that green building practices discussed on this site move to the mainstream. But isn’t cost a major problem preventing more widespread adoption? Mr Holladay’s article, “Who Deserves the Prize for the Greenest Home in the U.S.?”, for example, featured super-green, super-expensive homes. I don’t really see much social benefit of such structures.
So I wonder how homes and apartments can be made low carbon, low cost, as well as comfortable and durable. Maybe shipping containers are a good idea, no?
