Homeowner Adam Rust designed and installed an ecoroof on the shed of a single family residence. The homeowner wanted to build the ecoroof on a “common man’s budget” in order to showcase that ecoroofs can be done well on simple residential installations at rates that the average homeowner can afford.
The incentive offered the rate of $5 per square foot of ecoroof, and so the homeowner made it his goal to construct the ecoroof within that budget by using materials that may be easily obtained and installed by other homeowners. The surface to be covered by ecoroof was fairly simple to work with, and should be representative of the kinds of surfaces most homeowners would have on their property.
