This blog is dedicated to Nick Morgan and all my brothers and Sisters in St. Louis Mo.
The Habitat for Humanity St. Louis (HFHSL) a nonprofit agency has recently built 17 green homes just north of downtown St. Louis Mo.
Habitat for Humanity was able to build green by using sustainable materials and installing eco-friendly products, such as tankless water heaters, geothermal exchange heating and cooling systems, structural insulated panels, cool roofs, low-VOC paints, and copper fire sprinkler systems.
These 17 single-family homes are 1,200 square feet, and consist of three- and four-bedrooms, and one and a half baths. They were designed to complement the current architecture in the neighborhood, and all of the homes are pending LEED Platinum certification.

Structural Insulated Panels have came on strong in green construction in the midwest. I will have more information in later post about structural insulated panels.
If you are a member of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors you can access a free training program I have developed on structural insulated panels. It will be located in the community resource section.
