The Sustainable Stuart project basically is a single structure that contains two semi-detached homes. The home conserves energy as it has a highly efficient water heater, furnace and lighting; Energy Star appliances and windows, a super-insulated covering as well as perfectly placed windows to promote cross ventilation.
The home makes use of other eco-friendly features such as minimal-VOC paints and finishes, modified landscaping tolerant to droughts, super-efficient solar water fixtures and recycled material has been brought to use inside the home.

Global warming is a stark reality and we all must do our bit to start living in a sustainable way.
