Contemporary Seattle Residence Uses Bright Green Fiber Cement

This brightly-colored home  designed by Seattle-based Case Architects opened just a week ago, and was featured earlier on Jetson Green  this week. The home’s most notable characteristic is its use of vibrant green CertainTeed  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 . 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 stair treads, and paperstone  countertops.
