Treehugger Debate: Is Prefab a Greener Way to Build?
I’m still not quite sure how it happened and why I agreed to it, but I will be participating in a live debate on Treehugger.com this Thursday on the greenness of Prefab.
I guess this all started when I wrote a guest blog post for Jetson Green titled Prefab is Not The Answer to Affordable, Modern & Green Homes. Lloyd Alter from Treehugger who has prefab experience picked up the post and quickly some disagreements to my reasoning and a few others ended up chiming in with their own responses. All of these posts are linked to at the bottom of the Jetson Green post if you’re curious for the background.
Anyways, the debate will be between Michelle Kaufmann and myself and will be broadcast live at 3:30PM EST. The big difference between Michelle and I is that she is a successful developer of prefab homes, designs and companies while I am just a dude trying to build a few cool homes in Philly before my wife kicks me out of the house for wasting all of her time and money. Besides that, we probably have a lot in common and I look forward to her tearing me to shreds on a public forum. If you’d like to witness my humiliation, tune in in real time this Thursday.
