The house is environmentally sustainable (collocation) with rain-water harvesting systems to use rain water and use of special materials (collocation) to reflect back sun’s heat to drastically reduce (collocation) the need for air-conditioning. Moreover (cohesion), he has installed solar power systems to cut reliance on external, fossil-fuel based electricity. Overall (cohesion), the ecological footprint (collocation) of the house is really low. (Look like and Why interesting)
