This is a green home in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle and another energy-efficient renovation by Green Canopy Homes. The company — which also renovated The Sentinel — is targeting Built Green 3 Star certification with help of comprehensive air sealing, extra foam and rigid insulation, Energy Star windows, a home electricity monitor, heat-pump water heater, Energy Star ductless heat pump, and CFL lighting.
The preliminary Energy Performance Score had the 1924-built Keaton (GCH’s name for the home) using ~43,000 kWh per year in energy. Final EPS came in at ~11,000 kWh per year in energy, indicating a marked improvement in the energy performance of the home.
Green Canopy Homes estimates that improvements could result in a savings of about $2,240 per year, according to a Buyer Benefit Package prepared for Keaton.
Beyond efficiency, one interesting thing about Green Canopy Homes is they try to take as much input from the community as possible. For example, the exterior color — Segovia Red — was selected ahead of Gold Leaf (yellow), Greystone (gray), and Castle Walls (green) through a community campaign.
Keaton is located at 4034 Latona Avenue NE, Seattle, Washington, and is currently listed for sale with John L. Stott, Inc., for the price of $749,950. It has 3,126 square feet, three bedrooms, and 2.25 bathrooms.
