Despite green buildings popping up around the world, it’s still a bit difficult to find contractors that actually know how to go about constructing some sustainable features. Just ask Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker. She and her husband Tony Parker faced an up-hill battle recently with builders over their plans to create a home as eco-friendly as possible.
Features include recycled wood for the structure, solar arrays, and a grey water treatment system. Nice! Said Eva about the project,
“Everything is going to be environmentally friendly. We are going to install solar panels for part of the house. All our water is recycled for the lawn for irrigation. It was a fight with our builders; a lot of people don’t want change. But it’s worth it.”
