1910 Victorian Goes LEED Platinum

LEED Platinum Victorian home remodel

This home is a true testament to what can be done when homeowner and builder have passion, vision and patience.

1910 Victorian Goes LEED Platinum

The Project

By all accounts, this tired Victorian should have been torn down. However, the homeowners knew that there was value in this building and were passionate about transforming it into a ‘deep green’ home. The goal was to keep as much of the existing structure as possible. A very poorly done earlier addition on the back of the home could not be salvaged, so it was torn down. A new foundation and addition were added onto the original structure.

The results are stunning, not only visually but also structurally, as this home has achieved LEED® Platinum certification.
