This beautiful Austin, Texas home, with its glass box living room and huge sliding doors that encourage guests to move guests from the dining room out onto the deck, was designed for entertaining and has a spectacular view of the Austin skyline. But it's also pretty low-impact: the house has a 3kw solar panel system, instant hot water heaters, bio foam insulation, rain water collection that irrigates a good portion of the lot, very efficient mechanical systems, an ecosmart fireplace burner, and low e glass.
