The First Green Shortz Video

One of the goals of the Green on Gift project is to demonstrate some of the many ways to make a home more green. Since education is a personal and professional priority of mine, we’ve partnered with GreenShortz to produce a series of videos to help spread the word about the project.

The mission of GreenShortz is to promote incremental personal sustainability. Greenshortz host, Tom Mills, creates short videos about easy (and some not-so-easy) ways to be green. You can find his videos at Tom is partnering with us to document the Green on Gift renovation. He’ll help create videos highlighting certain aspects of the project and profile both the technology and products that will help make my house a green home.

So What’s The Plan?

The Green on Gift home is an 840 square foot bungalow in the Ormewood Park neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. When originally built in the 1940s the house had 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a small porch. At some point the porch was enclosed and used as a storage room. Incidentally, that renovation kept the window to the second bedroom and the original exterior door. Below is the floor plan of the house pre-renovation.
