Local Color: A Green Bungalow Renovation

From diving into their own dumpster to providing water-based adhesives to the construction crew, an Austin couple takes a hands-on approach to making sure their bungalow renovation is as green as possible.

Natural stone pervades the home. In the bathroom, small river stones spiral through limestone flagging. And at the living room hearth, granite abuts a native pecan floor from Texas Woods, a local mill that specializes in harvesting native, sustainable woods (www.texaswoods.com).
