Video Highlights from West Coast Green 2007

New and notable green products and a tour of West Coast Green's showhouse, mkLotus

More than 13,000 people attended West Coast Green 2007, the largest expo in the country focused entirely on innovations in residential green building, and Fine Homebuilding was there. Editors both manned the booth and walked the floors to bring you the latest information on state-of-the-art products and materials that make our homes more energy efficient, environmentally responsible, and all-around more healthful places to live. 

Tour the showhouse

Designed by Michelle Kauffmann and built by XtremeHomes, mkLotus was designed to be one of the greenest homes built in North America. Follow along as builder Tim Schmidt gives a tour of the house and highlights its many features.
