This brightly-colored home [2] designed by Seattle-based Case Architects opened just a week ago, and was featured earlier on Jetson Green [3] this week. The home’s most notable characteristic is its use of vibrant green CertainTeed [4] Fiber Cement for exterior siding, however, the home is a host to a slew of other eco-friendly techniques such as a green roof balcony, rainwater collection, and radiant heat flooring. With rather un-conventional looks, the home still contains some cozy-looking interiors that we think just about anyone could feel right at home in this sustainably planned and built residence.

The home includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a large, flexible living space all for $699,000 [5]. The home is located in Columbia City in Washington, just a short distance away from Seattle. At its opening on June 13, the home’s interior was beautifully furnished with contemporary furniture to complement its up-beat exterior. We love how airy the home feels without feeling over-exposed — making it seem homey and private. Additionally, a safe living environment was ensured through the home’s finishes, including low-toxic paints, bamboo flooring, plyboo [6]stair treads, and paperstone [7] countertops.

Saving the best for last, we think this home is extremely cool because not only can you watch its progress on youtube [8], but it has its own Facebook page [9]!
