Nifty little article about the growing trend of folks building green, including in Austin. For crying out loud, megabuilder KB Homes (along with Martha Stewart) is now marketing a net-zero house! The house above is from a cool little development on the east side of Austin called "Sol" that features only green homes that have solar or are "solar ready" (ready to install solar panels once you buy 'em). Love this house.

My tea party friends equate building green with tree-hugging socialism and French kissing Al Gore, but one can build green for a number of reasons, including money (much lower utility bills), patriotism (increasing our nation's energy independence), and a simple love of efficiency (what's wrong with peace, love, and efficiency?).
