When she and husband Jeff Capra remodeled their 1940s bungalow, their choices revolved around comfort, sustainability, and healthful living. They salvaged as many original features as they could, including windows and hardwood floors. Where they couldn't salvage the windows, they replaced them with energy-efficient double-pane ones. In went a split-AC unit--one thermostat controls the upstairs, and one controls the downstairs--to save on energy costs. All the paint used on the walls is of the low-VOC variety. The rugs are made of natural materials.
