Raising the EarthCraft Standard from Greenshortz on Vimeo.

In this 11-part video series, Tom Mills, an Atlanta resident who is on a mission to demystify green living for the common consumer through his company Green Shortz, explores green building basics by digging into the construction of a high-performance single-family home in the city’s Serenbe neighborhood. The neighborhood is requiring all homes to obtain EarthCraft certification, and in this video, Part 1, Mills introduces viewers to the home, which was designed by LG Squared and constructed by The Imery Group, and to builder Luis Imery.

Stay tuned for episodes 2 through 12 in the coming days.
