When we first approached about building an energy efficient home, we thought… “No problem!”  After all, we’ve been a 100% EPA Energy STAR Builder Partner for years.  But then the idea of a LEED Certified Home came up.  Let’s just say that is an entirely different beast.  But we were in!

So fast forward…  How exciting it was to be able to open this beautiful custom home to the public this month during the Wilmington Cape Fear Home Builders Association Parade of Homes.   And what an extra thrill it was to win the first place Gold Award in the top price category of $875,000 and up.

Sitting on a double corner lot in RiverSea Plantation, this home features a ton of energy efficient features and architectural details.  This gorgeous home is LEED Silver Certified, 5 Star Plus EPA Energy STAR rated and a Bronze Fortified Home.  Just some it’s cool features include geothermal, solar photovoltaic, solar water heating, rainwater collection, foam envelope, encapsulated… you get the idea.

What a privilege it was to build and show this great home.  Thank you to all of our fantastic trade partners, our team and our homeowners for making it all possible.
