Project: Green Idea House
StonePeak is excited to be a part of a new case study showcasing the latest and greatest eco-friendly construction material designed for sustainability and energy efficiency. The Green Idea House is a 2,100 square foot home that is being remodeled to give it a modern look that's says it is possible to be both environmentally sensitive and beautiful.
The house is being used in a long term case study put on by Southern California Edison to measure the effects of green products on energy consumption. The great thing about this project is they are using affordable products in a replicable design, so the concept can be reused with similar costs to standard housing.
The owners of the house are not developers, architects, or manufacturers, but actually the family that will be living there. While making the selection for their "green" house they were strictly looking to partner with businesses that are engaged in sustainable activities. Upon their search they found that StonePeak exemplified these qualities and decided to install our tile in two of their rooms:
- For the upstairs bathroom The Green Idea House will feature Light Splendor from the Cesare Magnus collection.
- For the downstairs laundry room they will have Nightsky from the Sky collection.
The Green Idea House will be holding tours of the house for the next three years, including The Solar Tour and the Earth Day Tour, along with several green building workshops.
We will keep you updated with pictures and information as the house becomes complete.
