Green to the Scene recently reported on New World Home‘s affordable green housing project that is currently being developed in partnership with Resources for Residents and Communities (RRC):

This New Old Green Modular Home was set in one day
On Tuesday, New World Home “placed” what will become the model home for a 14 home subdivision called Legacy Pointe in the Reynoldstown neighborhood of Atlanta. Notice I said “placed” and not “began construction”. That’s because this home was built in a controlled indoor environment and delivered on a truck straight to the home site. I’ve been to a couple of New World Home’s LEED certified homes in Marietta that were some of the first homes in the LEED for Homes program to reach the Platinum level without using any renewable energy.

The Legacy Pointe neighborhood will include approximately 14 residences reflecting New World Home’s New Old Green Modular® (NOGM®) housing platform. This project was initiated largely in response to a recent Memorandum of Understanding among the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in which they agreed to an unprecedented partnership to advance green, affordable, urban housing that is easily accessible to public transportation.
