Green Building Design Principles

A really interesting video on the principles that should guide all Green building designs. Part of a series given by author Dan Chiras. Excerpts are from a Residential Renewable Energy workshop offered through CU Boulder's Sustainable Practices Certificate Program. This and many others can be seen at sustainablepractices

It seems like woodburning is so overlooked in the green building industry. Maybe because there nobody knows of efficient woodburning alternatives?

Masonry Heater fireplaces squeeze 24 hours of heat from a short, very hot 2-3 hour burn, and pollute much less because they burn at temperatures up to 1700 degrees in hot coals!

It's time the fireplace went green, heh?
