A 1980’s house located at 1077 26th Ave E was originally designed by an architect who lived in the house for several years. The current owners wanted to remodel the home using green and recycled materials. More than 80% of the construction waste and materials from the demolition were donated to be reused or were recycled.

Additions to the house were built using FSC certified lumber and electric radiant heating was installed under the flooring in the powder room, mud room, kitchen and man cave. A high efficiency Eternal hot water heater that has ultra-low emissions and leaves virtually no carbon footprint was installed. It has a patented self-cleaning feature which reduces maintenance.

All new insulation used was formaldehyde free fiberglass and soy based, closed cell, spray foam. Cork was used as the flooring in the main bathroom and laundry room. Countertops were comprised of Ceasarstone and NovuStone which is composed of recycled materials such as glass bottles and mirrors as well as natural components such as gravel and stone. Low flow water fixtures were used. Tile used for the backsplash and shower accents came from Bedrock Industries which hand make glass tiles from recycled materials.

This house is part of the Northwest Green Home Tour which is produced by NW Eco Building Guild and Built Green. Homes are open for tours on Saturday, April 27th from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

Madrona Neighborhood Felt the Presidential Presence Yesterday

If you were driving in or around Madrona yesterday, there was no doubt you felt the President’s presence in the neighborhood. The Blume’s welcomed the President, along with around 75 guests for

Blume's Home For Sale

brunch yesterday afternoon and it was very obvious to all residents in the area that he was nearby. Locals were giddy with excitement at the possibility of an Obama spotting, traffic was a little slow going in and out of the neighborhood and secret service lined the streets, and patrolled the area surrounding the Blume’s residence. Who would have thought our neighborhood would be getting so much exposure this week! The Blume’s are not only getting major publicity for the Madrona area for hosting the President, but also because they are currently selling one of their properties. The home that the fundraiser was hosted is not the home that is for sale, which many publications had mistakenly written yesterday, but is in the nearby Broadmoor neighborhood.
