The pool is heated by solar panels. The roof is made of structurally insulated panels (SIPs).They used recycled denim insulation and the designer "built-in natural ventilation and sunshades on most of the doors, and windows with deep overhangs to temper the light and decrease heat gain in the summer."
But they also decided to include a pool house (a seemingly unnecessary addition).
So what do you think? Green or not?
