Hope Valley Residence Claims Top Honors In National Association of Home Builders "Green" Awards.

In 1984, the Cannova family settled into a comfortable, well-built home in the desirable Hope Valley neighborhood of Durham, NC. For over two decades, the home served their needs well. All the while, nobody ever considered that this house would someday emerge as one of the leading examples of successful sustainable remodeling in America. Well, it happened.

Now completed, The Green Makeover HomeTM is receiving accolades as positive proof that older homes, built before America understood the importance of environmental conservation, can be effectively and economically remodeled - taking advantage of the latest construction techniques and building technologies to create a home that is environmentally efficient, safe, and responsible.

See news release about this important prize.Already, this special project is being recognized. In fact, in May, 2009, this home was selected as a first place award winner in the National Association of Home Builders' competition for the 2009 Green Building Awards. (See our news release.)

Bill Beasley, owner of Red-B Construction, the contractor who conceived and created this project, is justifiably proud of their accomplishments. "There are over 125 million residential homes in America right now," observes Beasley. "Twenty-four percent of the total CO2 emissions into our atmosphere results from the construction and operation of these homes. As these homes come due for remodeling and upgrading, homeowners and builders have the perfect opportunity to improve our houses as well as our planet."  

"We have created this web site," adds Beasley, "to share our excitement and pride over this newly remodeled home. We have revealed our vision, detailed our process, and introduced the many important Partners who help make this remodeled home a reality. By sharing, we hope we can inspire others to 'Live Better. Live Green.'"
