Going Green

Category: Barn Conversion Journal March 11th, 2007 by mbc

We never really had any great green aspirations when we started out on this project. Our design priorities were mainly aesthetic rather than practical. Our goal was to build a beautiful place to live.

As the design has taken shape, it has grown to incorporate many features that are considered green or ecological.

  • Underfloor heating & a ground source heat pump.
  • Rain-water harvesting

I’ll post more on each of these in coming days…
