Burlington in Chittenden County, Vermont — The American Northeast (New England)
"A place where I would like to be," from the language of the people of the dawn who lived in harmony in this area for 10,000 or more years, the real discoverers and explorers of Vermont.
This building was rebuilt from the spirit of living lightly on the land and is an attempt to create a community that is harmonious with itself and its connections to the world. The best available technology was utilized to ensure the most efficient fuel, water and electric conservation, insulation and waste water disposal. A third floor was added to this historic Burlington waterfront railroad warehouse, transforming the structure into efficient and affordable housing that can be heated by gas, oil or wood.
