Pa. Sustainable Home Harvests Rainwater

The words "sustainable house" may conjure images of hippie throw backs living in grass shacks, geodesic domes, or some other dwelling that's wacky and weird.

Minimizing the impacts of storm water runoff through native landscaping, infiltration and harvesting for reuse was a goal from the start.
