The Greater Seattle area has a plethora of green built and high-performance homes. This week I’m showcasing 3 homes for my green-picks-of-the-week.
Each one of the homes offers a different approach to sustainability, energy efficiency and design, creative use of re-cycled building materials, and special attention to design and placement of homes on new site.
