Green Home Tour

  • Oakley, Cincinnati, OH

Organization: USGBC

New construction by owner/architect Tom Warner. A simple, single level, three bedroom home located on a large triangular shaped lot in the “Arts District” of Oakley. Designed on an east-west axis with almost all of the living area windows to orient to the south with views of the outdoor garden and entertainment areas. The home’s front façade will be clad in blue-green bright stainless steel and Zalmag flat lock panels. It will hopefully receive a LEED Gold certification using sustainable site points, photovoltaic solar roof panels, energy efficient building envelope, low flow fixtures, draught tolerant and food producing landscaping and energy efficient HVAC system strategies. 

Tom has asked us to leave our shoes in the mud room when we enter. Entry rooms are a part of the design of LEED homes. They can keep the home cleaner by providing a place for dirty shoes and wet clothing.
