The home is stylish as well as sustainable.

That does seem to be the important push these days - convincing people that sustainable food, clothing, practices etc. are more mainstream than the traditional image of unwashed hippies eating lentils while wearing hemp in their off-the-grid log cabin - or the more modern but still unappealing yuppie couple who ride bicycles everywhere, use cloth diapers and recycle their dishwater, and eat tofurky.

It's one of those things I have mixed feelings about. On the one hand, if we can't convince Joe Six-Pack to drink local organic beer, sustainable will not... be sustainable. On the other, I wish that we could mainstream the hippy/eco-yuppy lifestyles a bit more. I don't just want to have plentiful local and organic food; I want the small shops and walkable cities and upcycled clothing as well. I won't go so far as saying I want Ecotopia (not least because that book's got really weird gender and racial elements to it) but it'd be nice to not be the granola-crunchy weirdo without having to give up the granola-crunchiness, if that makes sense.

What impresses me is the "timber dragged from their forest with horses". Not a lot of people know how to skid logs with a team these days....
