LEED Gold- Spring Cottage

This is an example of "Green Architecture" that looks more contextual than what most people think of when they think of "Green Architecture."

Closed cell spray foam insulation was used to achieve a high R-value in the roof and walls. Additionally, a very efficient HVAC system was installed to achieve its LEED Gold Rating.

My roles for this specific project were in creating the construction documents, renderings and overseeing the construction. Additionally, I worked on the final layout of the floor plans, and in putting together documentation for the USGBC submission.
