Summary:
Building Green is pioneering and entertaining television with an eco-friendly twist, on a mission is to inspire viewers to discover just how easy, cost-effective and healthy it can be to go green, and to dispel myths about environmentally-conscious lifestyles. Host Kevin Contreras leads an interactive exploration of green building techniques and alternatives, from the eye-popping extreme to the green mainstream, all while demonstrating that healthy choices don't mean sacrificing style or comfort.

Follow the step-by-step construction of Kevin's green dream home in Santa Barbara, with practical advice and expert guidance on a range of topics like straw bale construction, breathable paints, blue jean insulation and much more. Signature weekly segments like "Inside the Design," "Saving Green," and "The Green Extreme" feature visits from leading experts and hands-on instructions. The final result is a Zen modernist house that is not only earthquake safe and energy efficient, but an exquisite example of the art of the eco-possible – a healthier home that leaves a lighter footprint and a brighter legacy.

This set includes all 13 episodes from Season 1: Breaking Ground, The Foundation, Framing and Roofing, Straw Bales, Doors and Windows, Exterior Finishes, Interior Finishes, Floors and Closets,Lighting, Water Systems, Landscaping, Interior Design, and The Grand Finale.
