Want to go see a modern green home this weekend?
This house, at 907 N. 61st St., in Seattle, was designed and built by Nelse Design + Build, of Seattle, has a five-star Built Green rating and was named "Green Cubed" for its green features and modern shape.
The home was framed entirely out of efficient structural insulated panels manufactured by Fife-based Premier Building Systems. It also includes passive solar heating and cooling, a clerestory to bring in natural light and a rooftop terrace and modular roof garden.
