You don’t need a fortune in specialty materials to build a space that is budget- and Earth-friendly. All it takes are thoughtful planning and savvy spending.
The idea of Green living is nothing new. Until recently, it was just called good sense. Long before air-conditioning, Southerners knew that higher ceilings and wider porches made for cooler houses. Historically, it has been Green practices more than Green products that have made homes work with their surroundings. In their Vero Beach, Florida, home, architects Peter Moor and Mary Juckiewicz prove that budgeting and traditional Southern building techniques can create an eco-efficient abode full of fresh style.
