Coming Home: Building a Green Dream Home

Natural Home & Garden publisher Linda Ligon and her husband settle into their dream home.

Linda loves cooking in the bright, beautiful kitchen. A small LG Energy Star-qualified refrigerator easily holds enough food for the couple. The kitchen also features a Viking stove and an Asko energy-efficient dishwasher. The dark island countertop is slate; the sink and dishwasher countertops are made from maple butcher block.
