EcoHomes Gallery
Back to EcoHome Index



These are pictures that I took from an Eco Home tour that I took. They are wonderful examples of how we can all make choices in our lives that respects ourselves, others, and nature. If you have pictures of a room or home that you have made environmentally friendly, please send us a picture and we will add it to the gallery. You can also mail us pictures to: EcoChoices Pictures, PO Box 1491, Glendora, CA 91740. (If you mail us a picture, please send us pictures that you don't need. We keep them in case we need to rescan them. Thanks!)



A Real Natural Bedroom



Everything in this room is made out of natural materials. Bedding is organic. Mexican tile flooring sealed with linseed . Wall lime plaster with bees wax finish.


Today's Home and office

Home is 80% off the grid (solar powered) and office is 100 off the grid. Metal frame house (70% recycled steel). Unity Home Management Computer: controls lighting and appliances, heating, ventilation and cooling, home security, window shading, room by room temperature sensing, outdoor temperature monitoring.

EcoKitchen

Cabinets made of naturally felled woods and finished with non-toxic stains. Drywall made from recycled materials with non-toxic paint finish. Charcoal poured concrete floor: absorbs solar radiation to naturally heat the home. Plyboo floor finish: "hardwood" floor made of bamboo.


Solar energy, radiant heat, nontoxic and recycled building materials. Sinks, tubs, fireplaces, countertops, dining room table, and coffee table are made from Syndecrete. Syndecrete is a lightweight concrete developed out of approximately 50% recycled materials. Paints: zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) interior paint, which emits no pollutants. Natural linseed and tung oils were used on exposed wood. Burnished concrete floors (to prevent unwanted moist which can usually be found in carpets).

The next 7 pictures come from Los Angeles Times Magazine, November 2, 1997
