Flood Proof Green Home
How do you build a flood proof home? Well, the main living areas need to be at least 12 feet off the ground, and the interior space must be small – no more than 450 square feet. How do you make such a house livable? Luckily the house is in coastal California, so 350 square feet of decking could be added to the outside. Plus many green features were added, such as passive solar design, radiant floor heating, and natural ventilation. It’s a beautiful, structurally sound home with a wonderful view!
