Healthy Home: Tofu (2001)

Season 2, Episode 11
Only available in Canada, United States

Visit the 1700 square foot home of Rolf Paloheimo, which won the 1991 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Healthy Housing Design Competition. This house has excellent indoor air, and uses the sun for heat and power and rain for water.

Expert chef Jesse Cool introduce us to some of the more fun things that tofu can be added to, namely, dessert.

Join air quality expert Sig Jantzen as we examine the toxins that can be released from carpets, and get a carpet checklist for the next time you're in the market to buy one.

Home 2000 was built with off-the-shelf materials as an affordable, flexible and healthy home. It incorporates healthy indoor air, an earthquake resistant design, no-leak walls and a creative floor plan that can convert from a single-family dwelling to a retirement home. With forethought like this, you’ll never have to move.
