Good friend and partner, TC Legend Homes & Zero-Energy Plans LLC of Coupeville, Washington was one of eleven home building professionals awarded in a National Green Building Award by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) during the 14th annual National Green Building Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The design build firm was awarded for their work on a Seattle area zero energy home for Project of the Year, Single-Family Concept and Research- Enterprise.
This zero energy home was one of our favorites to participate in last year. Built with our Premier 6-inch SIP walls and a 10-inch SIP roof, it was fun to follow the owners journey on decisions in green home building as their ultimate goal to reach net zero energy . The owners continued to use their blog, home tours and speaking events to help educate others on how you too can afford an energy-efficient and sustainable home. We have featured this project several times during their building process:
- PART 1: Building an Eco-Fabulous Home: does it cost more than the new townhome down the street?
- PART 2: Building an Eco-Fabulous Home: does it cost more than the new townhome down the street?
Washington Built Green organization, which gave the project five-star certification, published an outstanding case study on the Seattle zero energy home, green building features and stats are all included.
