Soap Star Keeps Environment Clean With New House

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Days of Our Lives hunk Peter Reckell will be spending the days of his life in an eco-friendly house.

The soap star, who plays Bo Brady, is currently building a 4000-square foot home in Los Angeles which he says will be “green from the ground up.”

Reckell’s house will be made of concrete to keep inside temperatures cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

He’ll have solar panels on the roof to run electricity, a gray water system to irrigate the landscape and an architectural layout which takes advantage of the sun’s path.

He says the sun will shine through the windows in the winter when the sun’s arch is low, but be blocked by overhangs on the windows in the summer, keeping the house cool.

Reckell says the house isn’t much more expensive than building a “stick house,” but he adds, “it helps to have your father-in-law build it,” which his is doing.
