Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 03, 2014
A new midtown Raleigh home built by Grayson Homes will be open to the public as part of the 9th Annual Triangle Green Home Tour May 3rd-4th and 10th-11th from 12pm to 5pm. Located at 542 Wimbleton Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609.
This home is part of an effort to renew and recycle the midtown area. Older homes are moved to a new location and renovated from top to bottom. When relocation is not possible, homes are donated to Habitat for Humanity of Raleigh, which deconstructs the home and recycles usable materials, an environmentally responsible alternative to demolition.
“We are excited about offering this opportunity to existing homeowners to see their old home reused for something meaningful,” said Mike Poupard, President of Grayson Homes. “Couple that with building an environmentally friendly new construction home in its place, is very rewarding.”
Situated in Raleigh's desirable Chestnut Hills neighborhood, this home includes innovations such as 2x6 framing for maximum usage of the spray foam insulation; a fully sealed and conditioned crawl space; and a whole house dehumidifier with mechanical ventilation system for maximum control of comfort, air quality, and humidity. A tankless hot water heater with a recirculating pump allows for nearly instant hot water anywhere in the house. This home also qualifies for the Duke Energy HERO Program.
“It is encouraging to see builders, like Grayson Homes, implement such innovative efficiency methods into their homes,” said Kristen Thornburg, Executive Director of the NC Clean Energy Business Alliance (NCCEBA).
Grayson Homes, in partnership with Bateson Realty, is opening the home at 542 Wimbleton, to the Green Home Tour from 12pm to 5pm. Guests will be provided with extensive information on the key ‘green’ features throughout the home.
