Ballard Built Green

Main FloorWe just listed a fabulous townhome in the heart of Ballard! This beauty was built in 2007 by Noland Homes and has the distinctive contemporary architecture and quality finishes that became their signature style. It’s a street-side, south-facing unit with a fully fenced garden patio and alley access to the garage. Being west of 24th Ave NW makes this particular locale quieter then central Ballard, yet the home is steps from the new QFC, coffee shops, pubs and the Burke Gilman Trail. It actually has a Walkscore of 92 – a Walker’s Paradise, so this is definitely urban living at it’s best!

Must See Projects! 2013 Green Home Tour

The 3rd annual Green Home Tour, hosted by the Seattle Chapter of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild and Built Green, is an event you absolutely don’t want to miss! Dozens of homes in and around Seattle, an impressive display of green & healthy systems and features, do-it-yourself information and resources, tour guides and project teammembers on-site to answer questions, and it’s all FREE!

Saturday, April 27th, 11am to 5pm

There will be upwards of 30 projects on the tour this year (so we can’t list them all!), but here’s our selection of must-sees!

Ballard Passive House by Hammer & Hand | Velocipede Architects
The impressive and rigorous German Passivhaus standard is said to be the ‘bar’ for energy efficient homes, and this 1880 sf home in Ballard is one of only a handful that have been built to this standard in Seattle to-date. Can a home really be heated by a system as small as a blow dryer? Well, go see for yourself!

Madison Park Remodel by Green Canopy Homes
These guys are experts at taking tired old homes and affordably re-vitalizing them! The details of this latest project haven’t been released yet, but rest assured it won’t disappoint! Get do-it-yourself ideas on how to improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort and aesthetics on a tight budget.

MRCCityCabinsCity Cabins at Columbia Station by Martha Rose Construction
Martha Rose has been pushing the green building envelope here in Seattle for over a decade now, and her latest project of 4 high-performance townhomes, dubbed the ‘City Cabins’ is no exception. South facing, super energy efficient, wired for solar pv, and as icing on the cake, detached garages with vegetated roofs!

Clearwater Commons by Cascade Built | Banyon Tree Designs
Yes, we’re a little biased here as we’re helping to market this project, but now that phase 1 construction of 4 new green homes is complete, it’s worth a peak! This 7 acre site is also home to the Mini-B Passive House, a community workshop and gardens, and an impressive stream restoration project.

Grow Community Bainbridge by Asani Development | Davis Studio Architecture + Design
This is an exciting new Bainbridge Island neighborhood of net-zero energy, solar powered homes, endorsed as the first residential One Planet Community in the country. Carbon independence, resource sharing, walkability and healthy living! Who could resist?!
