(Remixed audio - go to new version at http://youtu.be/WezjLz3l5cw)

The Eco-Sense House is alive! From dream (see episode 103*) to reality. Its curving cob walls embrace Ann and Gord Bairdapos's three-generation family. A living roof offers summer cooling and filters winter rains stored for garden water. The composting toilet provides rich soil for the veggie gardens, which supply much of the familyapos;s food. This "net zero energy" house uses the sun for electricity, hot water, and warm floors. Tour this small-footprint house, designed as part of the ecosystem surrounding it. Episode 230. http://www.ecosenseliving.wordpress.com
