“We are honored that our newest home was selected from among thousands of houses in the region for the best green building award.

The new award-winning 3,100 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home, located at 2617 N. Nottingham St., features a green design that is truly one of a kind, including extensive storm water management techniques and practices.

“These storm water management techniques include multiple rain gardens, native plants and grasses, permeable pavers and a living green roof,” said Moore, a Certified Green Professional.

The house also features an advanced insulation package, Energy Star Jeld-wen windows, a high-efficiency furnace with a heat pump, 1.28 gallon per flush toilets, pre-finished flooring and siding, and PVC trim for a low maintenance exterior.
