Energy Efficient Open House in Wallingford this Sunday

January 23, 2015 9:59pm


It’s not easy being green… or is it? Green Canopy Homes and real estate brokers Kris Murphy and Daniela Dombrowski are hosting an open house for the public to find out more about using advanced construction methods to make a home (even a very large one) energy efficient. The open house will be at a 4,200 square foot house (that recently sold) in Wallingford. Situated on a 7,200 square foot lot (a football field by North Seattle real estate standards!) the house is a model for energy efficient living.

At 2.5 times the size of an average Seattle home it takes 43% less energy to live in this home and boasts a 40% lower carbon footprint than the average Seattle house. This 4,200 sf home measured out at 16,000 kWh/yr, almost half of the average Seattle home at 28,000 kWh/yr, and 1,700 sf, or less than half the size. This is well below the 2020 City of Seattle target of 22,400kWh/yr. The previous, smaller, home that was on the property used more than twice the energy with 39,000 kWh/yr!

Later this year another home with similar energy efficient design will be built in Wallingford. Come by the open house to hear more from the builder about these kinds of projects and custom projects.

Where: 3508 Meridian Ave N

When: Sunday, January 25 from 1-4pm
