Sad examples of what people in Asheville think green means:
-Upon entering, toxic fumes of polyurethane rape your nostrils, when a simple waxing of the hundred-year-old oak flooring would be much nicer.
-"living roof"= 4'x4' patch of moss
-Own property in a creek and not use micro-hydro energy
-Forget solar energy, too (despite sunlight)
-Don't hire an architect to design an apartment complex (is this really legal in nc?)
-Waste all the space you can
-"japanese chain gutters"= lowes 49 cent/yard
-Pretend glass-infused counters come from old windows, despite bottoms of heinekin bottles.
-Pawn pseudo-green practices to the "idiot" layman.
Also the woman who gave Lee and I the tour treated us like crap because we are young and she assumed unable to afford the loft. Lame and we're very much ready to move to Portland, OR!
