Completed in 2007, these Cottages scored 103 green building points from the US Green Building Council. Earning the highest score of any home built to date, it was also the first LEED Platinum certified home in the Pacific Northwest. With only 35% of the energy consumption of a typical two-bedroom home in Oregon, the Cottage at Pringle Creek has set a new benchmark for residential design.

Included on the Cottageā€™s extensive list of sustainable features are: porous paths and sidewalks for stormwater retention, drought resistant landscaping, FSC Certified lumber, a geothermal heating system, and an array of photovoltaic panels. While the building footprint of this 1,350 sf two-bedroom, two-bath home is small, the open floorplan, high ceilings, long views, and extensive daylighting make a voluminous impression.
