Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen opened the doors of their newly completed 14,000 square foot mansion to Architectural Digest. The home, which took five years and $20 million to complete, while large, is a great example of how a person can make any home eco-friendly.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Margaret Russell, told the Today show, “Tom Brady literally opened the door to me and took me through the house and I found out how committed they are to an Eco-conscious lifestyle. It made the story even more special.”

Bündchen told Architectural Digest about making their home green, “From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’”

The couple says that 90% of the materials used inside the home are either recycled or antique. Three-quarters of the project’s construction debris was also recycled.

Giselle also had solar panels installed on the roof of the home. The couple even has their own chicken coop out back, so they can have fresh eggs daily.

There is one part of the house that doesn’t necessarily adhere to the green theme – Gisele’s massive walk-in closet, where her designer shoe and more than a few purses collection are on display.

Gisele may be in heaven over her new closet, but Tom described the full-sized gym as “his dream part of the house.”

The L.A. mansion also includes eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with spa, and a wine cellar. When it comes to house size, large and eco-friendly don’t often go together, but the lengths the couple went to in order to stay green are quite impressive.

Their neighbors include fellow Victoria’s Secret model, Heidi Klum and actor-turned politician, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    There is absolutely no way possible that 14,000 sq/ft mansion can be considered eco-friendly — especially when only two people live in it. Nor can anyone reasonably define an “Eco-conscious lifestyle” as building and/or living in a 14,000 sq/ft mansion.

    “From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’”

    For starters, define “mansion” as no bigger than 2,000 sq/ft and that’s for a family of four!

    Too bad the author didn’t call Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen on their “eco-friendly” mansion and their “eco-conscious” lifestyle.

    Amazing how delusional most celebrities are.

    “Our six-car garage is SO eco!”
