There are many ways to let the bounty of the natural environment support you, rather than working against it with ever more costly technology and resources, including your own time and effort. This site features highly acclaimed, award-winning homes and commercial buildings. These are not model or demonstration houses: these are practical, cost-effective homes and buildings that smart owners have built using renewable energy, appropriate technology, environmental design, and a host of other concepts that make for much better homes for people and businesses and a more sustainable future for society.
