"Award-Winning Green Home Turns Renovation into Innovation for Habitat" 

As the concept of Green Building sweeping the Southeast, one local residential design specialist ~ Jennifer Pippin has been inspiring Green throughout her career and decided to create her own Green home renovation.  Her goal was to create the ultimate example of what Green could mean in comfort, style, efficiency, and for the environment. 

Groundbreaking began in July 2006 using a 1,200 sf lake cottage. By January 2008 the home was completed.  The lake cottage has been transformed into a 4,459 sf Green showplace in Sherrills Ford, NC on Lake Norman. On April 16, 2008, it was recognized at the USGBC and Charlotte Business Journal's inaugural Green Awards ceremony. Jennifer was also recognized as Green Advocate of the Year and her business was recognized as Green For-Profit Business of the Year. Visit:
