A Green Model Home
We get a photo tour of the ABC Green Home at the Great Park.
In the shadow of the big orange balloon at the Great Park sits a new house and a grand proposition. A far sight fancier than any home built in the days of the old El Toro Air Base, the house represents the best, brightest and greenest ideas of the next generation of home building.
Built in a partnership between the park, Southern California Edison and Green Home Builder Magazine, the ABC (which stands for affordable, buildable and certified) Green Home is hardly a tent, teepee or yurt. It’s a very modern kind of home designed as much for cost-conscious developers as it is for the average home buyer, especially when they find out the yearly electric bills amount to zero.
