  • Central Vac System: The air filtration system is provided by Electrolux. It is a Beam HEPA system. The BEAM HEPA Air Filtration System is the most efficient system that removes airborne allergens and other particulates from the home. The system is 99.97% efficient at removing airborne particulate 0.3 microns and larger. A micron is 1/300 the diameter of a human hair. The True HEPA media in BEAM Air Filtration Systems offers the equivalent of twice or two-and-a-half times the filtering capacity recommended by the nation’s leading green building programs.

  • Insulation: The insulation installed is eco-friendly cellulose insulation, versus the traditional fiberglass insulation. This particular type of insulation was made from cellulose which reduces the irritation to skin, as well as to the nose and throat. The cellulose insulation is made from 85% recycled paper fiber and is a high efficiency thermal product. This means that the insulation will hold more heat in the house so that the home will use less energy to keep the home at a comfortable temperature year-round.

  • Media Air Cleaners: Combats indoor air pollution by capturing even the smallest airborne contaminants, such as dust mites, dirt, pet dander, and mold spores, and keeping them from recirculating back into the home’s air. Unlike similar products, the Lennox Healthy Climate media air cleaner does not produce ozone, which is a known lung irritant.

  • Interior Trim: The interior trim, constructed by TLC Mouldings, utilizes MDF moulding. This particular product is an environmentally friendly product because no trees were harvested specifically for its manufacture. In addition, TLC uses materials that are made from sawmill by-products making this a green product as well.

  • Foundation: Helical Piles support to the rear deck and front steps. A helical pile is a galvanized steel pipe shaft assembly with bell connectors on extension shafts and a 3/8’ steel plate pitched like a screw at its tip. Helical piles stabilize the foundation, eliminating the need for time consuming sub walls or augured piles.

  • Siding: NichiBoard fiber cement siding was used, which is made completely of post-consumer recycled content, like recycled pulp fiber, fly ash and recycled fiber cement products. Being made of more than 50% post-consumer recycled material, NichiBoard siding is the “Greenest” fiber cement siding on the market.

  • Roof Shingles: Cool Roof Shingles-Keep the roof surface 50 to 60 degrees cooler than conventional roofs in the summer sun, thus saving the homeowner in cooling costs.

  • Termite Treatment: This step is definitely a necessity in the homebuilding process as it prevents termites from doing damage to the house. A green solution was used when spraying the house. NorPest Green is a unique pest control method that specifically targets insects, but is a green solution of plant essential oils that are both family and pet friendly.

  • Landscaping: Fully landscaped, including small grass space in front, foundation shrubbery, rear patio with brick outdoor fireplace, brick fire pit, vegetable and herb garden, rear wood and side fencing.

  • Rain Harvest System: A rain harvest system and water re-use system was installed. These systems will enable the homeowner to reduce their potable water consumption by re-using their laundry and bath water to irrigate the gardens. Capturing rain water will provide supplemental water for irrigation but also enable the homeowner to wash their car or any other outdoor use which they would desire. There are 2-55 gallon exterior hand painted rain barrels and 2-300 gallon cisterns at the front and rear corners of the home. The irrigation system is continuous cycle with a manual turn-on.
