Our sponsors are manufacturers and distributors of green products who are committed to creating durable, energy efficient, healthy and beautiful products. They are experts in design and energy efficiency, whose expertise we are fortunate to be able to tap into. They've become our friends during this journey to build a resilient, high performance LEED Platinum certified home.
Sunset Green Home is the story of the rebirth of a home that was made uninhabitable by Hurricane Sandy. It's the story of how a state, county and town enacted property tax incentives to encourage homeowners to build energy efficient and sustainable homes. It's the story of the first family to try to capture the tax incentives and show their neighbors and friends that it can be done!
A lot goes into the construction of a durable, energy efficient, sustainable - and beautiful - home. Check out our Resource Guide, which features many of the products and companies involved in the project. Part I presents our sponsors and Part II presents a room-by-room guide to the products and technologies used in the home.
