We first found Santa Monica architect David Hertz when we learned of his plans to build a house out of a recycled 747. Now he getting much better media attention than a lowly blog: Businessweek profiles his work with a slide show of his greenest projects and the 747 house is just one in a wacky line of sustainable homes, including a 98% chemical free, ionized swimming pool and a house in Venice made from actual refrigerator panels. We mock now, but by 2008 everyone will want to live in a fridge-panelled, jet-roofed house.
