Back by popular demand, Neuhaus was featured again on this year's Green Homes Tour! We had a great turnout with over 150 visitors. The Tour featured a variety of 12 homes ranging from strawbale to shipping container construction, water wise gardening, LEED and GreenPoint Rated, single and multifamily, affordable to luxury, and more.

Neuhaus earns LEED Platinum!

Neuhaus achieved LEED Platinum Certification just in time for the new year! We are so grateful to be able to work with wonderful clients like Antje and the talented team of architects and designers that make demanding processes like LEED a breeze. We will have another post soon when we receive more detailed information on the final point tally in each category.

This year we had the biggest turnout at the Green Homes Tour to date! Over 150 people came by the Neuhaus Residence to discuss green building and hopefully gain some inspiration for their own homes. We hope you'll join us next year!

Here are some photos of the event:

Completion Photos

We are happy to say that the homeowners are moved in to their beautiful new house! For LEED, we came in 7 points above the Platinum threshold and have passed it along to the QAD team for review. We will update this blog with results as soon as we hear back.

If you would like to see Neuhaus in person, you will have an opportunity to this fall at the Green Homes Tour! The Tour features 10 sustainable and innovative projects throughout San Diego and is on October 22 from 10am-4pm. You can register for the tour here.

Photo updates

Here are a few photos from the site as we wrap up construction. The pool was just filled and landscaping is next. Next week we will have a HERS rater come to do airflow testing on the bath fans and range hood. This will earn us two LEED points in EA 4.3 and 5.3 for verifying compliance with ASHRAE 62.2.

The final countdown

The Neuhaus Residence is almost complete! We are wrapping up documentation for LEED credits pertaining to site sustainability, indoor environmental quality, and water efficiency. Once installed and verified by our Green Rater, the drought tolerant landscaping and water efficient irrigation system will constitute many LEED credits. We may technically be "out of the drought" in San Diego, but should always be extremely conscious about saving as much water as possible.
