9/20/07: Building Green

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Salt Lake City, UT – This Saturday, 9 houses and a new condominium development will be featured in the 3rd annual Green Home Tour in Salt Lake and Park City. Building green is a growing trend, and Thursday on RadioWest, Jennifer Napier-Pearce looks at what exactly being "green" means. What materials and systems can people use to improve the efficiency of their living space, and is it affordable for the average home owner? Jennifer talks to Ashley Patterson of the Green Building Center, architect Soren Simonsen, and Michael Dietz of Utah State University.
