The excitement generated by the HGTV Green Home winner announcement spurred me to jot down a quick post about the green features of next year’s HGTV Dream Home.
Although design details are still up in the air, the architect did mention in a recent call his hope and desire that locally sourced products including sandstone and reclaimed lumber be used in the home’s construction. Could salt-cured beams and planks from the Great Salt Lake trestle bridge form part of the home’s timber framing? What a story we would have to tell!
Stay tuned as we share more construction details in the weeks to come.
