I sometimes wonder what the various greenie sites I visit would think when they realized that I was using their info on how to build a green home to construct a 22,000 square foot house that is, technically green.
22,000 square feet? Wowzers. Don't put in too many hallways or you'll get lost.
They would probably applaud you for doing the right thing. Just because you may not agree with someone on their view of politics, economics or ideology doesn't mean that you can't learn from each other.
Perhaps, but would they also do the right thing?
Or would they balk at the high price?
22,000 square feet?
Room for 44,000 shoes on the floor alone.
Hallways don't count towards area measurements in U.S. markets. Nor do closets and other "non-liveable" spaces.
I didn't know that. So given enough hallways, you could have a 1,000 square foot house with the footprint of New York City?
Is it just me, or is everything done in strange ways in the US?
To me not counting closes and hallways in area measurements makes more sense since that will give you a more accurate picture of how much living space you are buying/building rather than how much closet or other "useless" space is being padded into the building.
I wouldn't say everything but yes a lot of things are done strange here even from my point of view. Of course every other country does things I find very strange as well.
They're all strange.
When you're strange Faces come out of the rain When you're strange No one remembers your name When you're strange When you're strange When you're strange

I think overall the greenies could accept it. Of all people they should know that any new belief they introduce to society is going to be co-opted by consumerism.
But they could look at it like people spreading a religion: You don't expect that Emperor Constantine is going to stop exploiting people and give up all luxury just because he went Christian. That's not what emperors do. But you know that he's making it socially acceptable so that you can get more converts than otherwise, some of whom will be truly virtuous and add to the church.
From my perspective, I do judge people for being consumerist green instead of true green. But I'm open to that criticism too, I could do more. So I don't judge nearly as harshly as I judge people who don't even pay lip service to greenness.
