In honor of Earth Day I wanted to share images from EcoManor – the first home in the Southeast certified by LEED and one of the first in the nation. The house was designed with solar panels, a geothermal heat pump, recycled drywall, reclaimed hardwood floors, cisterns under the driveway to collect rainwater & furnished with eco-sensitive furniture, fabrics, lighting  and rugs … just to name a few green design decisions & details.

EcoManor is a perfect example of how you can build a beautiful home while lightening your footprint on our Earth. 

Tyler and I dream (yes, we’re big dreamers) of designing and building our own home one day and plan to incorporate as many green concepts, products, designs, & materials as possible to achieve a sustainable design.
