The Green Blues: When Building Green and the Budget Collide, is a quirky observational documentary following Milt and Chris Ritter who are setting out to build a passive solar “dream” home, green enough to be termed a net-zero energy building, using just the money in their savings. But they soon discover that for average Americans like themselves, navigating the complicated green construction market on a budget is anything but easy. Despite the growing popularity of sustainable living, the concept of net-zero energy has yet to go mainstream in the homebuilding market – even in Oregon; a national leader in sustainable living. The Green Blues follows the Ritters' through the highs and lows of building their sustainable green home. As construction costs grow and their bank balance dwindles, they are faced with difficult choices, personal stress and the real possibility that this house will never be finished. Dreaming was the easy part.
