well, what about the lights, they seem to me like halogen lights, which have a massive consumption. not green at all.

I really like the flea market decor! I agree with the other posters, it's ok if a large family lives in it year-round, otherwise its wasteful.

For a 4 million dollar home you'd think they could hire an interior decorator. It looks like someone spent a weekend going to flea markets and buying junk to throw into the rooms!

It seems to me that the huge glass windows all over the house reduce energy efficiency. To regulate temperature inside the house better, the house should have thicker, well insulated walls, not glass. If they want sunlight for warmth or light, a couple of skylights can do the trick.

Like Red said, it depends on the size of the family that lives in it. If it is a weekend home or something, then its just ricidulous. But if its a full-time home for a big family, then sure, its green. The reclaimed redwood form old military barracks is an awesome feature!

This is gorgeous. It reminds me of the house from "THE STARTER WIFE."

It depends on how many bedrooms it has and how big a family it is for. If a large family lives in it, then it is a good use of space for that square footage in that market.Seems plenty green to me.

ugh....i love that people are looking for greener building techniques but i wish americans would get over the need to have the biggest house on the block. while some of the resources are recycled, the "greeness" of the home is diminished by the fact that so many resources were needed to build such a massive house. but i guess if it means that one less resource depleting, energy wasting, mcmansion home is built, that has to be a good thing.
