Case Study:

Harvesting Rainwater

The words "sustainable house" may conjure images of hippie throw-backs living in grass shacks, geodesic domes, or some other dwelling that's wacky and weird, but the Rosses wanted to show that it's possible to live in a home that's "just like others in the neighborhood" -- but which is also in harmony with the natural world.

Minimizing the impacts of stormwater runoff through native landscaping, infiltration and harvesting for reuse was a goal from the start.
