From Self-Powered Prefab Abodes to Zero Emission Houses

 - Apr 29, 2010
Nowadays, it isn't just about having a beautiful house, you want to make sure it's as easy on the environment as possible. These elegant eco homes are contributing to the health of the planet in one way or another, whether it be through thermal heating, solar power or being built out of recycled materials.

That being said, just because these elegant eco homes use alternative building materials and energy sources doesn't mean they skimp on aesthetic appeal. Each one of these houses has a beautiful contemporary look that could easily be, and I'm sure have been, featured in top architecture magazines.
