This new Claremont house looks pretty normal, right? But thanks to homeowners Vern and Deb Jahnke, and their team of architects and builders, this house is way green.
Here’s what makes it so:
• Oriented so rooftop solar panels are at most effective angle.
• Made of Rastra block, which is recycled Styrofoam and concrete.
• Designed so afternoon breezes sweep hot air up and out of house.
• Bamboo floors.
• Counters made of recycled newsprint and resin.
• Carpeting made of corn. And more.
