Jetson Green reports that New World Home recently took LEED platinum for another traditional home in Georgia. An excerpt:

This 2,869 square-foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home was built for efficiency first, skipping costly renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal systems.

Green features include an Energy Star metal roof, bamboo floors, efficient Pella doors and windows, an energy recovery ventilation system, Wattstopper lighting controls, no-VOC Benjamin Moore Aura paints, Kohler fixtures, Caroma dual-flush toilets, Icynene insulation, FSC certified lumber framing, Hardie ColorPlus siding, PEX tubing, and a Takagi tankless water heater.

There’s also drought tolerant, low-maintenance landscaping, permeable paving, and a rainwater harvesting system. In an email, New World Home told Jetson Green the home is located in one of the top school districts in the area and on the market for $450,000.
