I recently ran across a local blog written by Dorn Moore chronicling the construction of their green house in the Oak Terrace Preserve neighborhood of Noisette. Our Little Green House is a great example of someone using technology and a little gumption to make a positive impact on our community.

We’ve finally made up our mind to build a little house here in Charleston, SC. The house and the neighborhood, Oak Terrace Preserve, lean towards “green”, so we’ll strive to give you a better idea of what that means in practice. Here are thoughts and notes from the construction of our house.

And while I’m not a fan of how developers casually throw around the term “Sustainable Community”, I love the results…especially when it comes to the businesses involved (they play a major role in driving this green evolution – support them!). The Moores are not only supporting a multitude of green suppliers and retailers (Verdi springs to mind), but they are inspiring others in the community to do the same. Cheers to that!
