Green Home Plans What are some websites with 'green' home plans?

Question by Ride Like The Wind: What are some websites with ‘green’ home plans?
Meaning environmentally-friendly home plans. Websites please.

(United States only, please.)

Best answer:

Answer by Agua-Luna.com -I LIVE OFF GRID-
Let me start off by saying we (my family and I) live completely, 100% "off of the grid and are completely self sufficient"

The house is built utilizing natures natural elements, in the shape of an octagon with 8ft wide arch doors on every wall to catch every angle of wind (typical 4 sided homes have half the chance as one with 8 sides. A circle being the most efficient design). Woodburning stoves, solar chimney, solar AC, solar heating, solar water heating (pool and home), solar stove, solar power, wind power, hydrogen powered back up generator, hydrogen back up water heater, hydrogen stove, 2 hydrogen powered trucks, 1 EV (electric vehicle) and satellite internet.

We also built many green small cabins on the ranch that we offer to family, friends and our on-site off-grid workshop guests, including one straw bale, one papercrete, earth bag and adobe, one cob and cordwood, one underground and rammed earth, one log and post and beam and one rock. Each one actually started as a test for what the main house would be and were later finished and turned into guest cabins. I later wrote a guide on how to build with alternative materials using alternative methods for next to nothing.

We raise meat and milk goats, chickens for meat and eggs, ducks for meat and eggs, trap havilina (wild boar pig), rabbit, quail. brew our own beer from home grown products, preserve our fruits, vegetables, etc. smoke and jerky the meat, make our own soap, cheese.

There are no utility lines, no water lines, no roads, tv, cell service, etc. on our ranch. EVERYTHING needed is produced here. All electricity comes from 27 solar panels, 2 main wind gens and a back hydrogen generator if needed (typically we can last 9 days with all luxuries of sunless windless weather, hasn’t happened yet). Water is caught and storaged from the rain. Hot water is made with solar batch water heaters with an on-demand hydrogen hot water heater as backup. Even our vehicles use alternative energy (2 hydrogen trucks, 1 EV electric vehicle converted). Because of this we have no bills, no debt and no mortgage.

Anyone interested can check it out at..

www agua-luna com

I believe this is the first step anyone can make "help the environment". Once you convert your own life style to a greener more eco friendly route, you can start helping others.

my home has all the comforts listed above plus some. we live very comfortable without effecting the environment. just saying that tol et you know it’s possible. you may not want to go as extreme as me and my family but anywhere in between is something.

Without getting to in depth here, Using alternative fuels in your vehicles and harnessing your own electricity from the sun, water, earth and wind are the 2 are key elements in making a green transition and erasing your carbon footprint.

here’s a calculator to find out how much of a green impact your making (carbon footprint)

http://www.conservation.org/act/live_green/carboncalc

if you’d like to make your next step feel free to contact me personally at www agua-luna com

I’ve been installing home made Solar panels. Solar stoves, Solar batch and inline hot water heaters. Solar radiant heating. Solar home heating and AC, along with home made wind gens and other alternative energy items for the last 3 years.

You can even make the above projects on site with simple parts from the local hardware stores or auto stores or junk yards. For more info check out some guides I wrote / compiled on how to DIY www agua-luna com

Again these projects can be accomplished anywhere by anyone.

if you absolutely can’t do anything in your home at least you can put alternative fuels in your car. most major automotive manufacturers (Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors, etc) recommend the use of bio fuels, and nearly every car manufacturer in the world approves ethanol blends in their warranty coverage.

In fact your probably even driving an ethanol car and didn’t even know it.

The trick is finding fuel.

I’ve been producing biofuel for about 3 years now, it’s not extremely difficult. Basically you need general household ingredients, a processor (or still for ethanol) and some used oil. Blend it, let separate, screen and use. I complied a guide a while back to help walk you threw the process step by step, just email me or check out..

www agua-luna com

as for recyling the best way i’ve found without taking money from your won pocket is to join a free freecycle group in your area or visit the habitat for humanity.

If you'd like help in making your self sufficient steps, feel free to contact me directly. I've written several how-to DIY guides available at www agua-luna com
on the subject. I also offer online and on-site workshops, seminars and internships to help others "help the environment".

Hope this helped, feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions if you'd like assistance in making your first self sufficient steps, I'm

Green Building Products How does the use of green building products effect the appraisal value of a home?

Question by bankermama: How does the use of green building products effect the appraisal value of a home?
I recently built a house and was told by an appraiser that the value of the house doesn’t reflect the products used to build. I don’t understand this since I’ve laways heard that Granite countertops increases the value of a home. So which is it?

Best answer:

Answer by Landlord
It does, if they are certified energy star. You need to do the whole thing energy efficient though, not just some things.

Granite counter are an accessory, they do not effect value, however they do make the house more desirable and easier to sell.

Green Living Consultant Dark Living Room, what color paint?

Question by : Dark Living Room, what color paint?
My living room is dark! I have 1 big window but a huge tree right in front of it so very little natural light gets in. On top of that I have dark acacia hardwood (dark brown with a bit of red to it) and charcoal furniture. Now I have 6 different paint colors on the walls trying to figure out what on earth will work! I would like something modern, so I tried grey tones…bad choice, VERY depressing!!! Then I went to the usual beige but it is sooo boring, I even took the advice of the color consultant at the paint store and tried a toned down lime green. I’m starting to like it, but are there any colors out there that i’m not thinking of to go with dark wood floors and charcoal furniture? HELP!!

Best answer:

Answer by Lynk
go with a soft mauve (like a slightly ashy pink with a bit of purple in it) it would pick up the red flecks in the wood but also look really good w/ charcoal and w/ dark brown.

Going Green Tips Going green tips i need help?

Question by tareq_toon: Going green tips i need help?
I need to know how much money is by going green by recycling cans,plastic bottles etc. in one year thank you

Best answer:

Answer by mike
I don’t think recyclers are hypocrites… You can save money in garbage cost if you have to pay per lb or bag. in fact our boro had recycling then did not and in order to recycle you had to drive 40 miles round trip and then they only took certain plastics, magazines, papers, no metal and it was always changing- I recently read an article about “al gore” light bulb a man lived in a metro area but it actually cost him and he figured out that he expended more pollutants by driving the light bulbs to the recycling center then using a regular light bulb. I think we should be more conservative in our own homes and when making purchases with less packaging and stop buying bottled water! In the big picture recycling costs a lot, uses energy- we could go back to going to the store with bulk supplies purchasing items and placing them in cloth or glass containers!

2: basically re-use as much as possible so that there is minimal damage to the environment
3: use solar energy to heat water and run the building
4: use materials that don’t give off fumes

Green Living Guide "Market research": Interest in extensive guide to "green living" ebook?

Question by Love0646: “Market research”: Interest in extensive guide to “green living” ebook?
I’m just trying to find out how much interest there is out there for an ebook with a ton of resources (most online) to help a person be more environmentally friendly, and how much someone might be willing to pay for such an ebook. Thanks for your input!
I know what you mean, i don’t like to read at my computer either. my eyes get tired. but I’ve realized a good thing about ebooks. i hate writing in real books (what if I want to sell them or give them away? or just forget where I took notes? lol), but you can print out as many copies of an ebook as you like, and write in it, or give a copy to a friend, or whatever. but then you can also have it on the computer as a back-up, and are able to click on the links instead of typing them all in.

Answer by envirochick52
ive been trying to do the same thing. a few things ive done are: a) shop at thrift stores – they’re “recycled” clothing, and really cheap! b) im sure you’ve heard about flourescent lightbulbs, but those are definetly a good idea, c) carpool! or bike or walk, if you possibly can, or take public transport (classic, but it helps!!), d) dont buy bottled water. bottled water is a thousand times more expensive, americans throw away 2.5 million bottles every hour, and the chemical levels are way above health standards (or sometimes its just bottled tap water), e) eat organic and local. the genetically modified stuff is bad for you and the animal suffers a lot more (read Jane Goodall’s “Hope for Harvest”) and local saves so much pollution and helps for a more sustainable planet, f) make your own snacks like granola bars and things rather than buying packaged ones, g) turn out your lights even if your just getting a cup of coffee – the it-takes-more-energy-to-turn-them-on-and-off story is a myth. i could keep going, but thats plenty to get you started. you can always google ‘green tips’ and you’ll get stuff. also: www.350.org

Question by : Where do I find valuable information about green living and a healthy diet?

How To Go Green Q&A: How much must an iPhone 3GS be charged for the first time?

Question by : How much must an iPhone 3GS be charged for the first time?
I got my iPhone 3GS a few days ago and I asked a lady from the store how much time it must be charged for the first time.She said about five hours,until I see that the battery is full (green).I went home and left it for about 4,5 hours but in the meanwhile I turned it on and fixed some settings,send the first messages and for a few minutes I unplugged it because I wanted to go to my room with it but then I plugged it again(in 1,5 hour the battery was completely full but I didn’t unplugged ut,I left it for 4,5 hours as I said before)..Sooo I friend told me that he once had a phone (not iPhone) which he didn’t charge properly and so the battery life didn’t last many time and now I’m starting to worry about not properly charging my iPhone but it may be my idea that my iPhone’s battery doesn’t last long…What do you think? PS:Sorry if I’ve made any mistakes,I’m not a native english speaker

Best answer:

Answer by Hussnain
tbh iphone 3gs battery life is terrible, it doesnt last long enough no matter how much you will charge it, it doesnt matter the way you charge it 4 or 5 hours should be enough anyway, for me i had a iphone 2g and i had 2 leave it on charge for atleast 4 hours 2 get a 100% battery but at the end if i played games or browsed the internet on it the battery would die in lets say an hour. so instead i swapped for a blackberry :)

Green Living Consultant Living Standard: USA or AUSTRALIA?

Question by Alam Shaheb: Living Standard: USA or AUSTRALIA?
Dear Readers:

I am having trouble making a concrete decision whether I should move to Australia or stay in the USA.

I have been living in the states for the last 10 years; graduated in Computer Science and working as an IT consultant holding a H1B status. I could apply for my Green Card through my employer immediately; however, there is no significant timeframe when I may receive an answer from INS. Concurrently, I have also applied for an Australian PR which has been approved. I am in hesitant, whether I should leave all my USA's experience and start a life in Australia from scratch; or apply for the USA immigration and wait till I get a decision?

If you have lived in both these countries and could potentially shade some lights on WHY or WHY NOT I should make this move, I would certainly appreciate that. Please express your concerns regarding your valuable judgment.

Green Living Technologies Are freegans closest to a true authentic environmentalist or green living?

Question by Cow Cod: Are freegans closest to a true authentic environmentalist or green living?
Unlike wealthy high profile advocates for green living or the environment, they actually practice what they preach.

They are just shy of rejecting modern medicine, rejecting modern technology, wielding a spear, wearing animal hides, living in a cave or a hut

Nat Geo Taboo: Outsiders & Misfits

Best answer:

Answer by plenum222
Reading for about 20 min about “freegans” (Never heard of the word, thanks!…), they might be the closest thing to the “gathering” lifestyle, except today, where it mostly occurs in the urban jungle.

Good for them, too – I used to live on a commune. I admire the idealism, but doubt that my “comfort level” would permit me to last long. I like to be clean and when sick, it’s usually serious.

As far as “authentic environmentalism”, it’s a term with too historical and cultural reference points for me to be comfortable with vis-a-vis freegan. “Authentic” being relative to common usage instead of mostly “fact”, and “environmentalism” is too laden with the meaning-reference as the counter-point of industrialism, pointing to the fact that there were no environmentalists called that by name until so much damage was caused by the friggin’ industrialists!!

I think that becoming the authentic environmentalist would mean moving AWAY from industrial civilization and BACK to the jungle, forest, prairie, mountains, etc. and by CHOICE living in a solitary state or among other humans in a “clan” society and away from whatever “civilization” is now (which disgusts me). Once in the jungle, you wouldn’t be living as an environmentalist any longer, but has a human being in a more “natural” state.
——————-
Just playing with words, but an “urban, anti-industrial survivalist” or “eco-survivalist) are better, more practical descriptions, to me, and shed the pretentiousness of “authentic” and the idealism of “environmentalist”. However, something about “survivalist” suggests violence, hmmm….
(I won’t bother discussing “green living”… Pretty much is absorbed/covered with environmentalism.

Good luck – we’re all going to need it, soon.

Hack up some ugly curtains to make funky throws and cushions.

Re-use containers that single serving puddings come in to plant seeds (poke a drainage hole in the bottom).

If you keep fish, use water changes to water your houseplants or garden. Similarly, let cooking water cool and use it to water your plant.

Probably the most eco friendly house is the geodesic dome constructed with triangles. It is also impervious to to hurricanes and tornadoes. It can be constructed from a kit and you don’t have to be a genius to do it. It can use solar panels and every kind of energy conserving device. If you have the land to put it on or can back one side up to a cave you are most fortunate. The cave would keep the internal temperature constant.

Sustainable Q&A: Is is sustainable to continue to promote a system that makes the rich even richer?

Question by Les S: Is is sustainable to continue to promote a system that makes the rich even richer?
Is it sustainable to support a system when the rich continue to gain wealth at over 10% per year, accounting for inflation, and the average worker sees his wealth decrease at around 1% per year accounting for inflation.

Can we sustain a system where only the rich prosper?

Best answer:

Answer by The Doc
No, of course not.
The years when the USA prospered most were the years when the rich had the smallest part of the total gains. We are now back to the levels of 1929, and things are ugly.
And the ridiculous thing is that the rich cannot maintain their profits if the middle class is pinched so hard, because they lack the purchase power to sustain the economy.

Go Green Tips Can a .223 SS109 - M855 with Green tips (penetrator) go through a typical bullet proof vest?

Question by Chris R: Can a .223 SS109 – M855 with Green tips (penetrator) go through a typical bullet proof vest?
Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by Jolly Green
There are a lot of factors to consider when figuring this out.

A couple are:
Distance from the vest
Strength of the charge (how much powder is in the round)
Semi-Auto (or full) or Bolt-Action
Build of the Vest
Location of stopper plates

A .223 bolt action with a 150 grain load fired from a short distance (<20 yards) will probably go through a bullet proof vest without ceramic or steel plates, but if it is strengthened in any way it might not.

It all depends. I couldn't find any technical data offhand.

Edit:
Many apologies for the 150 gr. I had .270 powder loads on the brain. I was meaning a 75 grain, which is an above average charge, with .223's typically being around 50 grain.

Green Walls Living Walls I have dark brown furniture in my living room. Would light green walls (think sage) & dark brown carpet go?

Question by Alicia: I have dark brown furniture in my living room. Would light green walls (think sage) & dark brown carpet go?

I have a chocolate colored leather sofa and a dark cherry dining table. I would like to add some color by painting the white walls in my living room to a light sage green color. My only concern is what color carpet to select. Since I already have a brown furniture, would brown carpet be too dark? I have a toddler, so light colors like cream or beige aren’t an option. And I would prefer carpet over a wood floor for his sake. Thanks for any suggestions!

Green walls would be good, but still, with the toddler you’ll have to watch him. I do think that brown carpet would be too dark. Maybe a happy medium between tan and dark brown?

Green Living Forums Why would someone go into a forum marked for environment-green living and then act annoyed and suprised that?

Question by kcguy6935: Why would someone go into a forum marked for environment-green living and then act annoyed and suprised that?
people in this forum are discussing ways to aid the environment. I freely admit that as with any good idea you will have some people whoose heart outreaches their mind or their willingness to research what they are trying to talk about. But why would people go into this category and needlessly attempt to discourage someone from attempting to save money and resources and to experience a sense of accomplishment for doing so. As am example I cite this question (put it in your browser to read)http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AuREexAvnjXz3Th.N5Ai4zPsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20090301031449AAYmEi9&show=7#profile-info-MUcaYL0Paa

The individuals instead of responding to the question are they trying to make their lack of effort justified. Are they so ate up with the global warming/climate change war it spilled out of that battleground (Nothing was said about GW until a negative was added bringing it up) I would love to hear from both sides especially from people who want to discuss this (In other words e-mail enabled) Thanks to all

Best answer:

Answer by jeff m
The guy who posted the obnoxiuos comment (Will T) is a new guy, his few answers to other questions were similar in nature. The global warming issue is contentious, and many start out angry. And some in any forum just seem to like to vent their nastiness.

BTW, I liked your answer to the other question

Myself I think that AGW is a farcical scam, But that it should be possible to reach a useful compromise. To me the biggest waste of the scarcest resources is caused by all of us bringing a ton of metal at high speed everywhere we go. I’d favor a steep tax on vehicle fuels, to reduce consumption. It should be phased in gradually, with rebates to rural users and commuters phased out gradually. That would avoid waste caused by abruptly rendering cars less useful, and allow time for people who don’t need to live far from their job, to sell rural houses to those who don’t need to commute.

I’m alarmed at the idea of (effectively) outlawing use of coal. This will just increase use of natural gas (suitable as vehicle fuel), and increase the cost of electric vehicles. The tesla electric car uses 75 kwh of electricity to charge its 53 kwh battery. 75 kwh is equivalent to five 1500 watt heaters running full time for 10 hours. Shortage of fuel suitable to power farm tractors and semi trucks is the big problem we’ll face. Can you imagine the batteries they’d require?

Green Energy Green energy?

Question by Sawyer: Green energy?
My energy supplier is offering options of staying the same (regular), going 50% green, or going 100% green.
Going green is more expensive.
Any advice?

Best answer:

Answer by vladoviking
I think your one of the first in line for the GREEN scam. so your supplier can profit even more. If the green source is shut down for maintnance will you be shut off? Are their two sets of power lines available to your house, a green and regular? An alternative source they may have had for years anyway like Hydroelectric? Do you really trust the supplier in the first place? If your in an accident and cant work or lose a job are you still gonna enjoy the added cost?
On top of all that the brag is that Alternative energy is supposed to be cheaper once it’s installed. How much does wind or sunlight cost?

Eco Friendly Q&A: eco-friendly?

Question by mike d: eco-friendly?
I want to start an eco-friendly waterless car wash. What exactly does eco-friendly mean when dealing with cleaning products. Is silicone eco-friendly. Is there a list of chemicals that are eco-friendly? Also, if something is biodegradable does that mean it is friendly to the environment?

Best answer:

Answer by Jack S
“Eco friendly” is not a clearly understood concept and many may offer different definitions. My preferred definition would be an activity which is environmentally sustainable in that it doesn’t use excessive resources to the detriment of the prevailing ecological system.

Any chemical – such as water or silicon – is not in itself ecologically damaging its the extent to which your use of this chemical will distort the ecology of your environment. E.g. a water based car wash may not be that damaging if you don’t use harmful detergent and you collect small amounts of naturally and sustainably obtained water.
