(Click to see bigger version) GingerBread House, originally uploaded by jon.peck.
We found this picture on Flickr and thought it was quite fitting for the holidays. This ginger bread house features some green home features. You can see to the upper left the electric solar panels and green roof. As you travel to the outside of the home you will see the LEED plaque on the on the exterior wall. On the right you will see the residential wind turbines powering the building. Of course the project has a carpool lane and parking for electric cars. You can view the orginal photo on Flickr.
The building sports eco-friendly features galore: high-efficiency plumbing fixtures, solar panels, a wind turbine, a “carbon negative” annual energy profile and a yard filled with native and endangered plants … and more.
And the best part: It’s entirely edible. In fact, surplus building materials doubled as snacks for the architects. Via Cornell.
