Architect Matt Baran is building a new house in West Oakland. It's his first project, and we'll be following along as construction progresses. So far, he moved the house that was on the lot closer to the street, making room for another house in what used to be the backyard. Check out the green tour, and stay tuned for updates.
In other things green: we've had a creepy moment recalling our Girl Scouts/CFL/Scientology experience. You've got us wondering if we're being too harsh on Home Depot and their new CFL recycling program. And we just can't get enough of Knoend's Bean rocker.
We think Home Depot's signage for their CFL recycling is more than a little tacky, and we've got a more sustainable idea. But, judging from your comments, perhaps we're being a bit too harsh.
Stephanie's feeling the need to purchase one of Knoend's Bean rockers. (Especially generous Re-nest readers will note that both Stephanie and Jonathan have an blogging anniversary coming up!)
