What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

This home is constructed with a large window area facing a southern exposure and a masonry interior wall to collect and store the suns heat during the winter. The rear (north) of the home is fully bermed and the east is bermed up to and around the windows. The attached garage, with the overhead doors facing south, is also bermed on the north and west exposures. This design helps keep the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter and has been very successful in minimizing the heating and cooling expenses.
