Green Homes, $$$, Lightbulbs

Steve Glenn's LivingHomes, mentioned before on Curbed LA, gets play by KNBC's Channel 4. Some hard numbers: This prefabricated square foot costs about $250, 30 percent less than a traditional stick-built site home, reports the TV station, information which seems to fly in the face of other reports about how expensive these homes can cost. Also, the TV report says it may be difficult for people to reproduce these homes (why? tell us why TV news guy!). But here's something cheap you can do: According to Steve Glenn, if everyone in the country replaces just one light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, it is the equivalent of taking 1 million cars off the road.
