The Natural House is a sustainable and green home tour and building series, illustrating how creative, motivated and passionate homeowners incorporate innovative design, emerging technologies and natural building materials to build uniquely livable homes that reflect principles of harmony, health and ecological balance.
The Natural House half-hour pilot features two outstanding private homes built in Oregon.
The Kelly-Woodford home is an 'experiment in sustainabile building' and illustrates the blending of contemporary design, and cutting edge technologies in a rural mountain environment.
Next, to build their toxin-free natural home, the Hays-Carl family traveled back to the future re-visioning historic sustainable building and earth centered green design techniques to create a 'safe haven' in the country.
The series pilot also includes two ‘Onsite’ high value information segments.
Two “Onsite” segments take viewers on location to visit with innovators, visionaries and manufacturers who are making a difference in developing sustainable resources, materials, designs and technology.
First up, Yolo Colorhouse where natural paint designers create home healthy low, and zero VOC paints.
In segment two, we’re Onsite at Portland, Oregon’s Rebuilding Center
At 65,000 square feet the Rebuilding Center is the largest non-profit, used building materials resource center in North America and a 'natural resource' for Portland's do-it-yourselfers.
The Green Arc
The Natural House first season would be produced in a thirteen state ‘Green Arc” across the United States.
Begining in Portland, Oregon the green arc of production would move through the west, southwest and east coast ending near Portland, Maine.
Featuring two homes per state, the green arc concept provides viewers with a geographic, climatic and stylistic overview of sustainable and green building projects across the country, while delivering our sponsors advertising message to a regional audience within a national demographic.
