If you drove past this house, you probably wouldn’t think it was “green” and on a budget. Would you?
That’s exactly what it is. Dan Heinfeld, of LPA Architects
in Irvine, wanted to build his family house on a budget. Of course “green,” eco-friendly, and Earth friendly were all achieved because that’s what LPA Architects
is all about. Now it’s certainly not in my budget, and probably not for most Americans. But this luxury home, or better known as the Chestnut House
, was built with the intentions to prove that “green” doesn’t cost more. So if you are looking to build your next home, don’t think that you’ll have to spend the “green” to go green (pun intended). And please check out the full article written about this beautiful home at Inhabitat.com
