This Three Star Built Green Remodeled was featured in Fine Homebuilding's 'Houses' edition, Summer 2009.

Bought as an investment property, this is 'the house next door', literally.  My wife and I lived next door to this 1920's bungalow for 20 years.  When it came up for sale, we decided to go for it. During construction, I acted as Architect and General Contractor.

The upper half-story was fully torn off to make way for a new Master Bedroom and Bath.  The first floor was completely gutted and now sports a new, custom kitchen, bath and family room.

The home is a 3-Star Built Green project utilizing recycled materials, a new thermal envelope, certified woods, and water saving landscaping.
