There has been immense interest in our home since the announcement of the results of our petal certification for the Living Building Challenge in Oct 2010.   Jason McLennon (CEO of the Cascadia Green Building Council) and the author of the Living Building Challenge has referred to our home as “The World’s Greenest Modern House”.   The much coveted Living Building Challenge award is hanging on our living room wall.  Come and check it out.
Here is a list of just a few of the articles and case studies on our home:
