    Default Carbon thrifty home

    Frances Whitehead and James Elniski's house in Chicago was built using a number of green technologies


    The exterior is covered in corrugated steel-and-zinc siding


    The house has environmentally responsible technology like radiant heating in the floor


    The interior is painted chartreuse and filled with appealingly worn furniture


    The kitchen is equipped with energy-efficient appliances

    I think that is pretty neat. Although, it is not at all my taste.

    Not my style, but beautiful. Grimm, doesn't the street-facing facade have almost no windows? (See first photo.) I think all the windows are in the back. So probably there's a neighbor back there who has great views of their house. Hope they all like each other.
