Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

Hi Monica.
The front door is painted with Benjamin Moore's Amherst Gray. I chose to paint the trim around it as well to give it extra height and presence.

Yes, siding was ordered in Arctic White, but I wanted to warm up the color just a bit. We painted over the Hardieplank with Mythic Non-toxic paint in color Bell Song. Front door Benjamin Moore's Amherst Gray. Painted the trim around it as well to give extra height and presence.
