Sage-green-exterior-rendering

Green One Construction Services just completed phase one in Sage Green, an ultra energy efficient community in Beaverton, Oregon.  The entire project will have a total of 18 homes, and the first five are now on the market with pricing between $257,900 and $259,000.  I guess you can say it's a small price to pay for the desirable, but still rare, benefit of zero net energy living.

Natural-home-showhouse-exterior

It's been through several years of remodeling, but the Natural Home Show House is now complete.  The word show house, though, is kind of a misnomer because the project includes two connected homes.  One is on Nevins Street and the other is on Pacific Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.  They both have distinct styles and both anticipate receiving Health House and LEED certifications.
