--The National Trust Makes Green Choices

Barbara Campagna today posted a terrific piece on the National Trust blog about the by-design energy efficiency of regional vernacular architecture. As she notes, features like transoms, high-ceilings, awnings, and shutters were designed to beat the heat before climate control was available.

As we investigate energy savings, we're foolish not to include green design alongside technological innovation when we build for energy efficiency!

Check out her post.
