    Extreme  Home  Makeover:  Environmental  Edition     Your  Challenge:    Congratulations,  you  just  won  a  piece  of  land  right  in  the  heart  of  LA!   Your  challenge  is  to  create  an  eco-­‐conscious  house,  designed  on  Google  SketchUp,  which   takes  into  consideration  structures  that  pertain  to  the  following:  infrastructure,  water,   waste  management,  and  energy.    This  project  will  take  8  weeks  to  complete  and  every   week  you  will  gather  evidence  to  influence  your  design  decisions.    You  will  then  build  a  3D   model  house  on  Google  SketchUp  implementing  your  design  choices.    Finally,  you  will   propose  your  plan  to  the  “city”  for  approval,  giving  reasoning  for  all  of  your  house  features.         Calendar  of  Events:
