What goes into building a house that earns five stars on the Austin Energy Green Building program and a LEED Platinum certification? Austin designer Laura Britt found out when she tried to make her house the healthiest it could be and the most efficient and sustainable.

From recycling the house that was there, to the type of paint and counters she chose, Britt takes us through the process.

Her house will be on the Austin Energy and Texas Solar Energy Society’s Cool House Tour on Sunday.

Go inside Britt’s home and watch a video of Britt describing some of the elements in her home.
