Empty nesters sought "green" certified home

Empty nesters did not ask for much with their floor plan requirements, but their desire to reach the highest level of green certification in the LEED for Homes program provoked a bit more thought. A sustainable design and the usage of green products earned the home a HERS score of 48 and its targeted certification. Nestled within the home is a fireplace as part of a display that takes dimension a step further.
