[edit] Shaw

Just outside of Aspen, Colorado, where the rich and famous come to play, Host Emmanuel Belliveau visits a 7-thousand square foot home with a small carbon footprint. World's Greenest Homes takes a tour of a home in a Boston suburb made from the scraps and leftovers from an old interstate freeway.

[edit] Casa Verde

We visit a stunning and lavish home in San Francisco’s Mission district. This home is a study in how to take windpower to a whole new level in the city. Then to West Sussex to see a house that has the neighbourhood talking and then to Aspen to check out a huge home with a small carbon footprint!

[edit] Dulwich

We visit south London, to explore a timber frame home that is nothing like the Victorian-terraced homes surrounding it. The house is a rework of an old woodworking shop on a site that no one imagined. Then we tour a home in a Boston suburb made from the scraps and leftovers from the old interstate freeway. Next in the Hollywood hills, a couple built a fabulous home on a 9-thousand-square-foot piece of land. The design is bold, beautiful and boasts some of the earliest uses of non-toxic materials.

[edit] Solar Umbrella

We visit a tiny 1920’s bungalow in Venice Beach California that’s been renovated into the latest in modern design and green features. Then to a home nestled in the hills of Greece just outside Athens that combines contemporary design with natural and eco-friendly features that are as old as the hills. And then in Houston, we visit a colourful one-of-a-kind art deco inspired home that’s cashing in on energy savings.

[edit] Kickapoo

In this episode, we visit… ‘Kickapoo,’ a stunning Arts and Crafts-style home in Oregon, Illinois… The ultimate tree house just minutes from Sydney Harbour… And an eco-friendly, Mediterranean-style village in the Florida Panhandle that’s built to last 500 years.

[edit] Casa de Carmen

Only ten minutes from the White House in Washington, D.C, green pioneer and architect, Travis Price, cantilevered his four-storey steel and glass dream home over a cliff so it barely touches the forest below. Then, a green oasis in Baja, Mexico.

[edit] Chicago House

Faced with a derelict 3000 square foot warehouse, a Chicago couple transforms it into a luxurious home, filled with unique green technology. Preserving 90 percent of the building's original brick shell, they installed solar panels, wind turbines, and an ingenious underground cooling system drilled into the bedrock. The sprawling home also features a lush central courtyard, a greenhouse, and a living roof.
Two hours North of Sydney, this family's modern retreat proves you can live in complete comfort - completely off the grid. The home's unique green features include natural ventilation and a cinderblock fireplace that retains heat for hours. The home also features sweeping valley views, and a unique sprinkler system to protect it from the area's common bush fires.

[edit] Accordion House

Manny heads to Austin, Texas where one couple took an already green dream home and remodeled it to create a luxurious green oasis with a breathtaking view. Designed to stay cool naturally, the home features local limestone walls, recycled paper insulation, a heat-reflecting metal roof, and rolling aluminum shutters to help keep out the midday heat.
Then, in northern Sweden, two architects designed a very unusual off the grid house in one of the country's nature reserves. It's called Accordion House because it expands accordion-style over a stream and folds up into itself during the cold weather. It's cutting edge design and open concept all the way—with reindeer pelts lining the walls and a giant bathtub on the deck!

[edit] Taprobane

A few hours North of San Francisco, and a mile from the closest utility pole, a couple built their unusual green dream home in the shape of a hawk, and completely off the grid. Powered by recycled solar panels and a creek-fed hydroelectric generator, the home features curved walls, a ventilated natural underground cooling system, and a soapstone fireplace that radiates heat for up to 48 hours.
