(SOLD 5/10/13 for $408,000) This is one of 5 Eco-modern homes built by Abacus GC on Newport Avenue in 2006 as one of Central Oregon’s first LEED-H Pilot programs. Only one (maybe 2?) actually went on to get LEED certified but they were about as “green” as you could get at the time. According to the builder, every material was carefully selected to minimize consumption, toxins, and waste while maximizing energy efficiency and comfort and the home is estimated to consume 54% less energy than a standard code built home. Features include organically blended materials throughout the whole home, concrete floors with radiant heat, low VOC paint, solid 8 inch wood doors, kitchen cabinetry made with non-toxic adhesives, & Oregon grown solid wood countertops.
