Grand Designs Live goes eco-friendly

Visitors to the Grand Designs Live exhibition in London last week were treated to a tour of some of the world’s most eco-friendly housing designs.
Homes at the exhibition included dwellings constructed with straw bales, and houses built with logs. All of the houses included environmentally friendly fixtures and fittings.
Amazonails, a non-profit organisation from Northern England, said that they designed the straw house with traditional values in mind.
Seminars offered visitors general advice on reducing the carbon footprint of their own home, whilst on-hand advisors were available to give more specific tips.
Channel 4 programme Grand Designs is hosted by Kevin McCloud. The most recent series involved McCloud building an eco-friendly home in just six days.
