Sustainable Homes Take Root in the Valley

[Aspen Times] Curious what you get when a green-oriented architect puts his effort into his own place? Per an article from the Aspen Times – including many photos – Architect Doug Graybeal and his wife Peggy share their new home with readers. The Graybeals incorporated environmentally friendly aspects into every detail – from where their building materials originated to the compact size of windows on the north, east and west sides. The home’s energy efficiency, indoor air quality and use of green products earned it a spot on the Homes Across America website, which promotes resource-efficient, high-performance building.The uncommonly green home doubles as an eye-catching model for Doug, a longtime local architect of high-end homes, to show to potential clients.
