I think that my dh and I started the mortgage application process a wee bit late, here. Our lease is up end of May. For some of you who know the saga here…the owner of our home is entering into foreclosure. We love the home, and were thinking of buying, but…he works with a realtor who wants to put it on the market. I am not willing to sit here for months, while we have people trapsing through the house, weekend after weekend. Well, probably not that frequently considering the housing market isn’t that great right now, but we started looking at other houses on the market, and frankly…I am leaning towards wanting to build our own custom home, that is ‘green,’ and eco friendly. (thus we’d have to rent for two more years to save to buy a property) I have really gotten into recycling, eating organically, not wasting energy, etc…and I just think the idea is very intriguing to me. I have been watching some shows where people have taken their regular homes and made them, greener. I am wondering what your thoughts are? My husband is of the opinion that it won’t cut down all that much on utility costs, but I have read the contrary.
Curious if a) you have an eco friendly home and if not b)would you consider buying/building one?
