1st GOLD certified green home in Lewes, Delaware

By Lance Manlove, in News & Events

We just closed on the first GOLD certified green home in Lewes, DE.

This house was also registered in the DE Green 4 Green program and the homeowner’s received a $5,000 grant for building a certified green home.  What a great closing gift!  The program is available to anyone building a new home in DE that is certified either SILVER, GOLD, or EMERALD to the NAHB Green Building Standard.

The design of this home fits perfectly into the historic district of Lewes and is only blocks from downtown shops, restaurants, and Farmer’s Market.  The home features stunning reclaimed pine floors, bamboo countertop, reclaimed stair parts, geo thermal heat pump, ERV, Energy Star Appliances, PEX plumbing, low flush toilets, rain barrel, to name a few.  The driveway is permeable grass paver that allows for rainwater to infiltrate rather than run off to the storm water run-off and the native plantings are grouped upon watering needs to conserve water.
