GreenPDX members received a tour of the Ash Creek House from the architect, Paolo Scardina, and the owner. There were over 30 people in attendance so we split off into groups to separately explore the upstairs and lower level with the experts.
The house is “LEED for Homes Plantinum Rehab Certified,” which means that besides being beautifully redesigned, it has so many sustainable, high efficiency features that it’s impossible to list them all here. To name a few: geothermal ground source heating and cooling, heat recovery ventilator, all Energy Star appliances, 100-year cellulose insulation, naturescaping, bioswales, and a creek out back that is home to salmon and trout! All of this in the city, in a house where 99% of the remodel construction waste was either reused or recycled.
Listed by Hilary Bourassa and Darcie Pelsor of Oregon First, this house is a green homeowners dream at $550,000. To see this bright beauty, give me a call for a special showing!
