Here was a little piece that KATU TV put on their local news program last night. It's a short and complimentary piece.
I tried several times to explain in pithy soundbites that what made this house green was the walkable, bikeable location, the small size, the air sealing, and insulation.
Instead, they showed close-ups of my kitchen sink and bathroom tiles while describing the "accessible dwelling unit". I find this funny because there is nothing really qualitatively "green" about the sink or tiles, other than being salvaged.
Oh well...this piece isn't really intended to truly convey what a "green" house is, but rather, to get more people to come on the tour. So, come on the tour this weekend and come check out the ADU and other great projects around Portland in person.
