Environmentally Friendly House
Project: Malibu Beach House, Episode 8, Part 2
Bob discusses the many cutting-edge, environmentally sound features of the Malibu project with an ecological consultant. Then, Bob visits "Home Improvement" star Tim Allen for a tongue-in-cheek tour of his very own home improvement project. Back on site the house is wired with a "smart house" all-systems monitoring network. And hot-mopped tar is used to waterproof the stairway planter.
