Green Single-Family Home
Building & Space Identification,Interior Design & Brand Integration,Healthy & Sustainable Environments
We will be building a 3 bedroom home for one of our Habitat partner families. There are two properties upon which we could potentially build, and depending on the firm's decision, are willing to work on either one. We hope to learn about and use both new design elements and building materials. We are currently building to Energy Star standards and hope to maintain or improve upon this level of sustainable building in this collaborative project. We hope this home will act as a concrete classroom to help our community understand and appreciate newer design methods and sustainable building practices.
We hope to begin designing the home in October and complete the construction of the home summer of 2011.
