We all make choices; sometimes those choices can have an extraordinary impact on the results. Denny Sadowski chose to build his home sustainably. His goal was to build the most maintenance free home possible while achieving a sophisticated look that would last indefinitely. The house, located on a valley wall about 1000 feet above Honolulu, regularly sees horizontal rain, heavy winds and volcanic haze from the area’s active volcano, all of which contribute to the degradation of conventional materials. Further, the marine environment, in combination with these site location factors create a substantial challenge in selecting materials that will last.
