LivingHomes recently added a brand new KieranTimberlake house to their growing collection of LEED Platinum residences. The KTLH1.5 joins LivingHomes‘ collection of over 10 homes (with three more underway), securing the company’s position as of the country’s most experienced sustainable homebuilders. Founder and CEO, Steve Glenn notes, “We are extremely honored to receive another LEED Platinum rating with a LivingHome — a level that very few homes ever achieve. More important is what the certification represents: a home that uses far less energy, water, and materials resources than most homes while maintaining far better indoor air quality.” LEED Platinum is a tough standard, and LivingHomes also builds all of their homes to meet their “Z6” environmental goals: zero energy, zero water, zero indoor emissions, zero waste, zero carbon, and zero ignorance.
Recycled steel and timber–efficient engineered lumber makes up the various modules of the KTLH1.5 home. The home’s interior features a central vacuum system, and a mini-duct air distribution and ventilation system that help improve indoor air quality. The KTLH1.5 also boasts recycled glass tiles, high-performance windows with recycled frames, and water-saving features including dual-flush toilets. The interiors of the home were furnished by Kristin Kilmer Design.
