After receiving my gas bill in January, I decided that heating a house less than 2,000 square feet should never cost more than $500 in Richmond. Somewhere in Canada, fine, but in the South?

Most green building articles focus on new homes, but here is a great story for finding out how to complete a green renovation on an old house.
