Green House Being Built Near San Francisco City Hall

SAN FRANCISCO, Sep. 17, 2007 (KGO) - If you pass by San Francisco City Hall today and see a house being constructed just outside -- don't be surprised.

It seems weird to see a house in the Civic Center Plaza but it catches your eye. A group of doors on the house will open up to make it feel like your outside when you're inside. That is just how green living in the house would be.

This is a green house which aims to teach you how to be environmentally friendly in your home. Who knew that it could be so stylish? This is a modular home.

It has to be the most stylish one on the planet. It's only 725 square feet -- that's part of the message -- to be green, you don't need to build so big. Since it's modular, you can buy other pieces and add on to it. The green features include solar panels and a gray water system, meaning it reuses the water from your sink and other places such as your toilet. It also has a green roof.

"It means that there are plants covering the whole entire roof and it acts actually acts as a cooling system. So you can go up there, enjoy your green roof and also cool the house," said Colette Turbeville, West Coast Green.

The roof isn't on the house yet. They hope to finish building the home by tonight. It will be open this week to professionals in the business. The public can't walk through it until Saturday which is also the day of the Green Building Show at the Bill Graham Auditorium. Inside the show, you will see the 275 exhibits all focused on building or remodeling homes that are environmentally friendly.

If you think this sounds expensive consider this; this home you can have for $150,000 dollars. You have to buy more pieces to add on if you have a larger family, but it is factory built and that helps keep the costs down.
