Alternative Building (Episode #206H)

KQED Life: Sat, May 20, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

Topics: Large scale eco-building. After coming to terms with the fact that a family of four probably needs a bit of space, Rodman and Gina continue to explore what other types of alternative builds could be in their future. They are introduced to a family built rammed earth construction home, the benefits of retrofitting an existing build and learning about the environmental benefits of straw bale housing.

Building Small (Episode #205H)

KQED Life: Sat, May 13, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

Topic: The movement to living simpler by reducing spaces carbon footprint (and mortgage payment). Rodman and Gina are looking towards the future and what their next home may look like. Their liaison to alternative-environmentally friendly building practices, Brian Fuentes, sets them up on a tour of three examples of living simply and small. Rodman and Gina weigh in on a tiny home, a (literally) hand made cordwood home, container home and even get a laugh out of a tree house.

Zero Waste: Home and Office (Episode #204H)

KQED Life: Sat, May 6, 2017 -- 11:30 AM

Topic: Waste Reduction in the Office and Home. Gina begins working at the office with Rodman and is troubled by the lack of a green policy, recycling and composting. She asks her friend, corporate green consultant Stacey Lambright to come by and audit the office...much to Rodman's surprise. He is put on the spot as Stacey shows him where he can improve and gives him his green grade. To turn the tables he asks Stacey a favor. Gina is then surprised with a knock at the door and green audit of her own. Finger pointing ensues as Rodman and Gina debate who did better before Stacey puts an end to it with a trip to an actual landfill to see the where trash actually goes if it's not diverted.
