http://www.NewMexicoPBS.org - Stace McGee was kind enough to give me a tour of his Monte Visa neighborhood home. He and his wife purchased the house when it had only one story. The couple designed a second story addition, and in so doing, used green concepts.
This was somewhat easy for McGee, who founded a sustainable design and consulting firm in Albuquerque. However, he insists that all of the choices he and his wife have made -- from well-planned indoor/outdoor space, windows that don't leak energy to the type of covering on the floors -- are ones that every family can make. He says everyone has access to these products and processes.
I particularly appreciated his priority for infilling -- choosing to renovate in an existing neighborhood instead of building from scratch in a sprawling area.
