Building Green in Solana Beach, San Diego
This is the story of Pollie Gautsch and Darryl Matsui's trials of building green in Solana Beach, CA. We bought a 1.3 acre piece of property in Solana Beach in a lagoon area. Its so beautiful and we want to build our dream (and green) home on the property. One and a half years later our story poles are up, plans are in the city of Solana Beach and we are on our way. We go to the city for approvals (cross your fingers) in August 08. In the meantime we will be collecting green materials and information to build this dream home. So far we have a bamboo sink from Stone Forest and have picked out our "green" builder...Christian Naylor from Naylor Construction.
