Everyone loves a well-feathered nest, but the choices you make on what to put in your home can be just as important as the choices you made while building it. Health expert Alyssa Alvord explains to Kevin about non-toxic wood finishes for furniture, while interior designer Vanessa Grant talks about natural fabrics and furnishings.

As a special treat, Kevin visits the home of Zem Joaquin, eco-editor of House & Garden, whose blog Ecofabulous has long been an inspiration to all of us at Building Green TV.

Kevin’s motto is “buy the best that you can buy,” and it shows throughout his home, from the antique armoires Kevin bought for his bathroom vanities, to his sleek Valcucine kitchen made of recycled components. You’ll learn that buying the best isn’t always expensive, and that you can even find eco-friendly products at the local mall if you know what to look for.

    This is really nice but the truth is most average Americans don't have the kind of money that is required to buy custom green furniture. and  all the custom upholstery !reclaimed wood furniture is pricy as well …I think recycling old or second hand furniture is an affordable  option there are eco friendly chalk paints to refinish .Also craiglist "free" listings have door windows and reclaimed wood and other building materials !

    Great project. However it is a shame that you have used so much steel for the structure and the inside walls. The latter should have been made with timber frames.
