Traditional LEED Gold Home Tour

Happy New Year!  We’re starting 2017 off with a tour of a gorgeous traditional LEED Gold home. Not only is the interior beautiful, but this house is LEED-certified at the Gold level.  LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. In order to be certified, a house or building needs to follow a variety of green practices. Today’s home was designed by Tim Barber Ltd. Architecture.

A stunning vaulted ceiling adorns the family room with its clean lines and soft colors.

In the dining room, white wood creates a geometric pattern on the ceiling. Pale blue wallpaper creates a soft yet elegant look. Transom windows allow plenty of light to shine through and a nubby rug provides texture underfoot.

The star of the master bathroom is a deep claw foot tub settled under a trio of windows. Roman shades can be pulled to create privacy.

  1. Thanks for sharing this lovely home. It felt it a bit cold to me with all the shiplap and board&batten seemingly in every room. I do happen to love the wood ceilings, though. One day all buildings will be green and not a minute too soon for my grandchildren and those who come after. Hope your new year is wonderful.
