Sustainability -- This small dwelling utilizes a "green" roof, photo-voltaic panels, and what appears to be a small backyard garden to be more sustainable. On top of that it is also quite architecturally attractive. Being green: An idea that will never get old.

Earth sheltered Pinnacle House is an award-winning, sustainably-designed home in Lyme, New Hampshire. The home was designed and built by architect Don Metz in 1971, a pioneer in green home design and construction. The north-side of the house is built into the hillside, creating a green roof through the use of earth-sheltered building techniques. The house faces due south, offering passive solar gain and spectacular views from every room. thepinnaclehouse.com
