If you are proud of significant ecofriendly improvements to your home, Coral Gables Television (CGTV) wants to showcase your story.
“Green Homes of Coral Gables” is a new show that demonstrates why Coral Gables is quickly on its way to becoming a greener city thanks to the dedication of local residents.
In this first episode, long-time resident and environmentalist Sallye Jude talks about the total green upgrade to her French Normandy Village house built in 1926.
“Historic houses are as green as you can get, because you’re keeping existing materials,” said Jude, who agreed to allow cameras inside her home. “Your house needs to be like a tight envelope and all of the other things will come easier. You want to use or reuse materials, or materials that are renewable like bamboo floors.”
