I just found this video about a resource efficient house at the BRE Innovation Park at Ravenscraig in North Lanarkshire:
The house is one of the first projects to be delivered by the Scottish Government’s Resource Efficient Scotland program. The home demonstrates how the latest principles in resource efficiency and waste reduction can be applied in house building.
These are the ideas we need to see spreading around the globe. It does takes a lot of effort, technology and money to start this but it will pay off! It does not only facilitating sustainable living for occupants, but the design of the house will ensure maximum recycling and re-use of the building materials at its end of life.
