Here is the link to a copy of the program. I have split it into Parts 1, 2, 3
We saw this as an opportunity to get wider exposure that would help in changing peoples’ perceptions that building an eco house and having an green lifestyle requires huge compromise, sacrifice, and expense. Indeed, in building the house we have always been keen to highlight the many aspects of the house and our lifestyle which enhance quality of life and comfort, and which are invariably simpler and cheaper, and of course, have a lower inpact on the environment.
Unfortunately, we were informed that we could not talk about the energy-saving features of our house:
- triple glazing,
- wood stove,
- absence of air condition
The reason: the programme series was sponsored by an energy company. Incredulous!
Anyway, we hope you find the programme interesting, even though it is in Japanese.
