Green Homes of Pittsburgh:
An OnQ Special Edition

The growing trend in real estate across the country has been to "go green in order to save green" and Pittsburgh is just one city joining the environmental fight. In this OnQ Special Edition viewers tour three Pittsburgh homes, all outfitted with the latest in green design and environmentally-friendly building materials.


House Transformation - A few years ago, it was a rundown mess. Today, it's a brand new space one local family is calling home. OnQ's Tonia Caruso shows how two architects turned an abandoned building on Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh's Garfield neighborhood into a residence and work place, with many green elements - and it's getting lots of attention.
