Case study: Home of green-building council founder


When David and Sara Gottfried renovated their 1915 Craftsman bungalow three years ago, they became the owners of one of the greenest homes in America. Deemed LEED Platinum by the US Green Building Council, the modest but beautiful bungalow is a green dream inside and out.

That how green-living blog Re-Nest introduces this great green remodeling project. Though it looks much like the other homes in its Oakland neighborhood, the home received LEED for Homes Platinum certification, putting it at the top of the heap of earth-friendly buildings.

This home’s impressive level of environmental friendliness should come as little surprise; after all, David Gottfried, is one of the founders of the U.S. Green Building Council. We’re proud to say that among the many green products and features in this home is a houseful of Marvin low-E double-pane windows.

For a deep-dive into the home, its green features and more info from the Gottfrieds, check out the full post from Re-Nest.
