Leed Platinum by the Bay

A certified LEED-H Platinum building by Butler Armsden Architects, the Tiburon Bay House features an innovative and sustainable landscape. Native lawn, permeable surfaces, and a gray water system were all integrated into the landscape design. Great care was taken to reuse existing materials and drought tolerant plants. Existing concrete was transformed into a new patio; no-mow lawn was used as a low-maintenance grass solution; and gabion walls were built from recycled materials.

Gabion retaining wall - Love the gabion retaining wall. How did you get this past inspection as a retaining wall? What's the trick?

We've used gabion retaining walls on our projects, and the "trick" was hiring a geotechnical engineer to design them. No problem with permitting or inspection...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Christine Tusher added this to Going Solar at Home: Solar Panel Basics
Typical project length: Wiring and installation generally take a few days. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months between the time you sign the contract and the actual installation, however.Permit: Absolutely required. This a big part of why there is often a bit of lead time between signing the contract and installing a system. The types and costs of permits vary by municipality; your installer will usually obtain them for you.
