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.

Floors, walls, ceiling, doors and trim are all matched in non-toxic paint to Benjamin Moore's Mayonnaise. Floors are ECOS Organics floor paint, which painters now call "liquid gold". Very durable and 100% healthy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Similarly, white floors, walls and ceiling make the master bedroom feel much larger. In addition, Kauffman Tharp took a cue from A Pattern Language and opted for a bed alcove. The philosophy is that when a room has to awkwardly adapt everything around a bed, it's all wasted and awkward space during all the other hours of the day when you're awake. Creating a special, cozy alcove for a bed creates a comfortable space just for sleeping, and leaves a lot of other space to use for "sitting space, play areas, dressing and storage" the rest of the day.
Rachel Grace added this to Five-Panel Doors Unlock Style
Contrasting hardware on a five-panel door really stands out. This juxtaposition between the stark white palette and bronzed hardware is a breath of fresh air.
6. Make lots of lists. Being sick takes us out of our usual daily routines, and if you’re not too groggy, this can be a good time to step back and think about what your goals and dreams are. If you find it difficult to write in a journal, I suggest making lists. Lists are easy. They roll right onto the paper with practically no effort. To get started, try listing things you want to accomplish in the next 12 months, things you would do if you didn’t have to worry about time or money, or things you want to change, upgrade or fix around the house.
