On Monday 30 October, KZYX Renewable Energy Hour hosts Doug Livingston and Jeff Oldham brought back renowned green architect David Arkin to discuss rebuilding after Northern California's devastating wildfires. David's firm, Arkin/Tilt, is offering several home plans, including engineering, for free to fire victims. The firm has designed an affordable straw bale hybrid home that has a two-hour fire rating.
