sustainable materials (reclaimed barn wood for foyers, floors, trim, baseboards, desks and vanities)
energy efficient features (state of the art lighting controls, glazed high performance windows, automated shades, daylight harvesting, LED lighting, energy recovery ventilation)
sustainable features (native landscaping, low flow plumbing fixtures, low-emitting VOC paints and sealers) & marsh machine (wastewater & recycling system)
