Canada’s Greenest Home to be built by students in Ontario
Soon, a bunch of students in Canada enrolled in The Endeavour Centre’s Sustainable New Construction: Building a New Future program will begin work on constructing a true green home, Canada’s Greenest, in Ontario. The 2,000 square-foot home will be built over a period of five months and will sport an energy-efficient foundation, prefabricated straw bale walls, grid-tied photovoltaics, solar hot water, rainwater collection, greywater recycling, composting toilets, and natural paints and finishes. The house will then go on sale and the proceeds will be used to offset tuition costs! This home, to surface in the next few months, could very well turn into a working example, helping inspire home builders and buyers around the world to go green.
