Through their experiences, the couple aims to expose which green technologies and products are affordable to consumers using ‘real world’ budgets. Consumers are bombarded with many 'green-washing' campaigns, and catchy 'green' advertisements. The Ruckels aim to empower people, by providing them with enough information to differentiate the facts from ‘green-fiction’
The Ruckels created an informational website six months ago: http://www.greenloghome.com so that other people may learn how to: find, purchase and build on the most appropriate parcel of land; deal with Realtors, surveyors, engineers, contractors and manufacturers;
The Ruckels have also begun the process of shooting a thirteen part television series, about how to become green. Another of their long-term goals is to create a set of workbooks for schools and other projects, which can be used to teach children about the effects of global warming.
“We have invested a lot of time into researching the advancements of green technologies”
Natasha Ruckel added, “Building a green home isn't just about using renewable and eco-friendly construction materials; it's also about creating a safe environment inside the home. It is amazing how many household products can contribute to poor indoor air quality”.
Once complete, the Ruckels hope to set the standard by which the construction of green log homes will be measured in the future. Using guidelines set in place by the Green Building, the Ruckel home is aiming for Platinum LEED® status. Once complete the Green Log Home will be one of the most efficient LEED® registered log homes in the USA.
