What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

We have been dedicated to preserving the pristine purity of the land, where our family lives, where our food grows, and where our livestock grazes. Our pastures have been sustainabley managed, are 100% chemical-free, and are basically a natural food forest of layers of vegetation from mature trees down to legumes and herbs, all growing in areas accessible to our grazing animals. Our 100x100 garden plot is also chemical-free, and improved soil using only permaculture techniques. Our residence is constructed from a percentage of reclaimed 90 yo solid oak lumber, with low-VOC paints, low-flow plumbing fixtures, renewable energy heat source, allergen-free, ductless a/c, upgraded insulation, tank-mounted eco sink in the main floor bath, and 3 indoor Victorian design ceiling mounted clothes drying racks.
