theSAGE – 2009 – Eugene, OR

We thought since the economy was down, we should build a spec home in Eugene. Actually, we feel such a commitment to sustainable design that we thought we would build a home targeted for LEED Platinum. Dubbing it “theSAGE”, a 2-bedroom, 1,447 sq ft home that was on the Home Builder’s Tour in 2009. theSAGE easily achieved Platinum at 110 points, making it the highest scoring LEED Home in the State of Oregon (and West of the Rocky Mountains). We were also part of the City of Eugene’s pilot program on green building. What that means is we got a building permit over the counter!  See our Twenty for Twenty videos on YouTube.
