KB's GreenHouse with Martha

On Tuesday, Builder magazine announced that the KB Home GreenHouse: An Idea Home Created with Martha Stewart will be unveiled at the January 2011 International Builders' Show in Orlando, Florida.
In addition to the home design being influenced by Martha Stewart, one of the country's leading lifestyle experts, the KB Home GreenHouse is slated to be the first net-zero energy, single-family home in the Builder Magazine Concept Home series. The KB Home GreenHouse will also demonstrate to consumers that this environmentally friendly home not only saves energy and water through the use of solar and thermal systems and meeting EPA's WaterSense for new homes specifications, but can also save them money for years to come by reducing energy bills.
"Teaming up with KB Home, one of country's premier homebuilders, and incorporating Martha's incomparable style and eye for functionality has been a fantastic experience," said Boyce Thompson, editorial director for Builder magazine. "We're always looking for new ways to showcase the latest and greatest in building technology and KB Home's efficient designs and industry leadership in the field of green building have allowed us to do exactly that."
The home will open for tours on Wednesday, January 12, 2011. In addition to live on-site tours, an online virtual tour will be available for those unable to make it to Orlando.

THIS IS AWESOME!!!! With everyone so concerned about the environment (as they should be) I think we should applaud their efforts. I occasionally pick up books on home design & peruse them, only to be baffled @ how out of touch some of them can be. There is a designer who offers eco friendly homes, but they are million$ compounds. How about something affordable and doable? Leave it to Martha. I think KB Homes should offer these as "kits" that people can buy and have built anywhere in the country. Imagine buying an eco-friendly home and having it shipped to wherever you want to buy land? DO IT MARTHA!!
