Don't like them. What would happen if there is a electrical storm and the trees were hit by lightening and caused a fire or a big wind would come, lots of snow etc.
What would you do? Anything is possible.
We live in a house that is ground level.
Wow! lol We live ina little cow-town in Fl. Yall are talkin bout snow n stuff, and its been like 75/80 here :) thank you lord! i love the snow, but i also like being able to come home, and have to turn on the AC.
People put to much emphases on the materialistic things, the Bible says "dont build up treasures on earth where moth and rust do corrupt and destroy, but build them in heaven with the Father. Dont get me wrong, i enjoy my earthly posetions, but where wwould you be if Jesus came back right now? Its holiness or hell

If you want to read material with some actual insight to what our direction needs to be NOW! Because everyone here is right about how perverse this article is in the fact that it makes all of the rest of us feel like we could never accomplish a "Green Life" because of money.
Spread the word on this movement it begins as just an idea!
P.S. suburban sprawl alone (not including small towns, cities, or rural areas) make up 20 millon acres of the U.S. that's over twice as much as all the major national parks in the country combined which only add up to around maybe 9 million acres.... so think of that next time you look at your genetically bred grass and your nandinas that there are litterally tens of millions of in your yards.... i dunno maybe more people will plant oaks or tulipifera or somthing that actually was here when columbus landed.
This kind of crap makes me want to puke. they think cause somebody with money built 1 house that seems eco freindly is some huge deal? what about the other 299 million americans? or for that matter the other 6,999,999,999 people on the planet now? i dont see any of us living in one of these gross preversions of what is supposed to be a perfect and eco freindly house. a tradiional house is more sustainable than this junk. and i wonder what kind of "susutainable" landscaping they have? thats the real threat to the enviroment not the house it's self. most subburban homes are just biodiversity deadzones with only a hand full of animals that can stand living near people in them and only a few native plants and mostly foriegn invaders.... we need to conserve energy dont get me wrong and reduce rescource consumption but this is not rescource reduction in this house. more crap went into that house than the 2 and half story i live in now. and it's bigger in sq footage. so if you really want to help the enviroment then look at your yard not your house cause that is the real crime.... so if everybody just put more thought into that we would doo wonders for nature and ourselves.
Eco-friendly? Sustainable? That house is a mansion. Nothing eco friendly or sustainable about it. A family who lives in under 1000 sq feet is living sustainably. People who live in trailer parks are 10 times more eco friendly. I don't see anything about how much their power bills run...
