Scott Adams Plugs Sharehouse

From his own experience in the California alt-housing world, writing in WSJ, he wishes you luck finding an architect and contractor who can work with the world’s greenest house plans you found in a magazine “using mostly twigs, pinecones and abandoned bird nests.”

And your green house (hold the lawn) will be uglier than you thought if you go ” into the process thinking that green homes were ugly because hippies have bad taste.”

The Dilbert creator and perhaps most prominent Sharehouse proponent says “this is a good time to define “green”:

The greenest home is the one you don’t build. If you really want to save the Earth, move in with another family and share a house that’s already built. Better yet, live in the forest and eat whatever the squirrels don’t want. Don’t brag to me about riding your bicycle to work; a lot of energy went into building that bicycle. Stop being a hypocrite like me.
