Question

Can you help me find a list of green home designs that includes a comparison of many features?

I previously found such a site from an article in Popular Mechanics approximately 9 months ago. For example, I remember one favorable design by an architect based in the East Bay, in California. In any case, I am interested in buying a pre-designed green home and would like to compare optional features. Can you point me in the right direction?

I would take a known list, such as LEED for Homes from the USGBC and/or Build It Green's Green Point Rating list, and compare the pre-designed home you are considering against these lists.
