Concrete home for sale in Vernon, British Columbia

I feel weird saying “green home” and “concrete home” in the same sentence because it seems like such an oxymoron. But indeed, that is what this house is touted as being:

Exquisitely finished, award winning green home architecturally designed by Hugh Bitz. Enjoy this LEED Platinum certified concrete home free from utility costs! Geothermal & solar systems work together with clay painted walls to maintain the perfect environment.

The listing description of the kitchen is so fancy, it is almost a foreign language to me… something about induction cooktop, high speed oven, fully integrated Bosch dishwasher, FSC certified wood.

Below is a “sundrenched patio with hard wired sound system” – wow.

Clearly, no expense has been spared in this house.

Another nifty feature of this home is the Maintenance free SYNLawn… (a.k.a fake grass).

I would love to have a perfect, maintenance-free lawn like that! (Imagine the money you would save from not having to water!) On the other hand… I wonder how it stands up to doggie business?

The bathrooms are sleek and serene:

I’m still preplexed by that fake lawn… do you think it would have to be steamed cleaned like a carpet? How else would you get the doggie doo/pee smell out of it?

Yes, I lay awake at night and think about things like that.  :)
