HGTV to Give Away Green, LEED Platinum Modular Home

Jetson Green reports HGTV has built a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certified modular house, one of only 40 in Colorado, that it plans to give away.  The exterior is a combination of brick and thin stone veneers, 50 percent recycled fiber-cement siding, with recycled blown-cellulose.  The Andersen windows are 100 series with E4 glass set in reclaimed wood frames.  The 2×6 exterior framing is set on 24” centers with three stud corners.  This 2,400 square foot HGTV Green Home earned a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rating of 38, which makes it 62 percent more efficient than a standard new home. The solar photovoltaic system will generate 75 percent of the home’s energy.  Other green features include non-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint, recycled wood fiber floors, and interior doors made of beetle-kill wood, a locally grown pine. The giveaway begins April 14.
