The Abu family is moving into Habitat for Humanity's first fully green home in Houston. The house on Sterlingshire near Mesa has a solar converter for power. The kitchen cabinets are made of recycled material and the indoor paint and coatings contain no toxic material.

"We're really so excited to be in a real house and fresh environment," said the homeowner.

Habitat says the green living environment is especially helpful for one of the Abu children who have asthma.
