Here is a rest area in north carolina that has a living roof to prevent rainwater run off and also lower utility bills. They also built this building into the side of a bluff to insulate the building with thermal mass. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I wish i had a house like this, AWESOME!

    I've "heard" sedums are edible and some places here use them on green roofs as well. I think it's a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

    The living roof is a great idea, I just wonder, if on your home what it would do with the humidity level and if it would encourage mold growth. Any ideas?
