Going Green at the Beach

The Sustainable Development Task Force is partnering with the Porter Family to promote and advocate for their near-shore remodel. This is an exciting project for us that will model various green projects that we will showcase during construction and during site tours when the house is finished. Keep checking this site for photos, updates on progress as well as various decisions that have been made in the design process that will impact the functionality and innovation of the house.

Currently, the Porters are hoping to obtain a 5 star BuiltGreen certification as well as Energy Star and Health Home, a project of the American Lung Association. For more information on these certification tools, see, , and,2085,DIY_16808_3739724,00.html
