On 3/14/2013 the steel framing continues to be assembled over the foundation on the Begley's new home. Steel, while not a common material for residential framing, is 94% recyclable, has been milled locally for this project, and is a more sustainable choice than wood, which is typically used for residential building construction. Ed Begley Jr. (noted actor and environmentalist) and his wife Rachelle Carson-Begley are building their new home under LEED Platinum Certified standards in an attempt to become North America's greenest, most sustainable home. It is also being filmed for their web series "On Begley Street." Studio City, California, USA
