A number of things make the second floor of this house a green-building and design success. First, the architect incorporated a multifunctional loft with skylight above the master bedroom. The loft serves as a studio and hangout for the homeowners' daughters, while the skylight provides ample light and opens up to vent the tall space. The master bath, born of homeowner Craig Kelley's own sweat equity, features wheatboard floors, concrete countertops, recycled tile, plywood cabinets, and an efficient low-flow toilet.
