The Baufritz Carbon Positive Home – a truly green dwelling


The designers at housebuilders Baufritz have apparently come up with a ‘carbon positive’  home. Yep, that’s a house which will store more CO2 than it emits during its lifetime. It will also be 100% biodegradable, which is an interesting concept in itself.

 The house, on display at this year’s [Grand Designs Live] show, is carbon positive to the extent that each house stores at least 50 tonnes more CO2 than is emitted during its lifecycle – the equivalent of a family saloon car driving 6,200 miles per year, every year for 20 years…The Baufritz Carbon Positive House will be made entirely from non-chemically treated building materials and natural products, using building components that ensure good ventilation and protection from harmful electromagnetic radiation (known as electrosmog) to provide a better quality of day to day living.
