The owner of this home (featured in Dwell) is a sustainable consultant and longtime environmental and political activist. His home in Belvedere, north of San Francisco, was extensively remodeled and the original fixtures recycled or donated. 95% of the wood in the home used in the home was either salvaged or sustainably harvested…

The home boasts photovoltaic cells, a high-efficiency boiler, a super-insulated roof structure, a radiant floor-heating system, insulated glazing and low-e coatings on the windows and doors, adjustable solar shades to reduce direct solar gain as needed, high-efficiency household appliances, and no-PVC blinds.
