Use New Materials Conservatively

Just the fact that this project was a renovation, rather than new construction, makes it greener than most because of all the reused resources. Add to that the fact that the addition was modest in scope, bumping up the roof line by only 6 feet. Builder Bill Moore avoided ripping out and replacing existing materials and instead refurbished, patched, and matched—weatherstripping the old windows, for instance, and just fixing the cracks on the porch-wall stucco.
