What's not to LOVE { Beautiful, Tranquil, LEED Platinum Certified }

This gem of a home designed by Coates Design, inc is LEED Platinum Certified, which is the highest rating by LEED.  I love the wooded location, the unique floor plan, and use of light.

The home's LEED Platinum website states: 

By implementing geothermal, photovoltaic, solar hot water, and advanced heat-recovery technologies this home has succeeded in reducing its energy consumption by more than 70% compared to a typical home. The home also makes use of rain water cisterns for irrigation of native landscaping and a vegetated roof. Rather than demolishing the existing structure on the site, the team deconstructed, it effectively diverting 98% of its material from the landfill.

That is a wonderful accomplishment!  I really LOVE this beautiful home!
