2013 Seattle Home Show Feb. 16 - 24
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the huge success of our innovative new Bainbridge home at the Seattle RV and Home Shows! Those who visited the shows will not soon forget the contemporary Bainbridge series' all new exterior design or free-flowing interior living spaces featuring a huge 4'x12' kitchen island, its signature 11' front sidewall and high windows providing for outstanding natural light in the great room, the dual ensuite master bedrooms or the integral outdoor kitchen/patio area. Great for view property! We will be featuring this home, by Fleetwood Homes of Oregon, at our Chehalis display center soon!
Ivan & Brenda Keefer
Ivan & Brenda Keefer's retirement dream was to move to rural western Washington near where Brenda grew up. After retiring and selling their home in the Chicago area they chose to go with NW Green Homes and our comprehensive land and home development services.
The Keefer's project required us to clear their 1.7 acres, build the driveway, install a septic system, build a 24' x 36' detached garage/shop and install a new 1,866 square foot Fleetwood manufactured home. Along with their home installation on our proprietary concrete stem wall foundation, Ivan and Brenda also hired NW Green to build a 10' x 12' Timber Frame covered entry and rear patio area featuring a 10' x 26' Pergola.
Going Green: Environmentally Responsible & Resource Efficient
The goal of Green Building is to optimize the performance of a home to ensure you, the homeowner, enjoy the greatest comfort, health, safety and well-being while using the least amount of the earth's limited resources. There is no rigid formula for building a green home, it's simply a systematic approach to maximize the efficiency of your home while minimizing it's impact on the environment.
Think of your home as a system: much like your body, it requires energy to function, it breathes and requires maintenance to stay healthy. A healthy body functions much more efficiently when it's properly fueled and exercised, something that requires knowledge, planning and effort. Much the same, Green Building implements years of research together with efficient building strategies to assure the various systems and structure of your home, like a trained athlete, perform at a high level while using the least amount of fuel and resources possible.

Your budget may influence the degree to which NW Green Homes can incorporate these features into your home but it will always be our focus to build your home Green. In fact, it's the motto of our construction company, NW Green Construction, “Green starts with dirt work” which means we want to be minimally invasive on the environment - your property, throughout your housing project. We believe the preservation of the earth's natural environment and ecosystems is an integral element in building Green.
NW Green Homes is pleased to offer the Earth Advantage certified Green option exclusively through our affiliated Palm Harbor factory. Earth Advantage Green Certification is available with any manufactured or modular home built in the Palm Harbor manufacturing facility.
After creating and building NW Green Construction into a successful land development company, Calvin & Mary Beth Dahl desired to expand their business into the residential home arena. They chose to bring Ron Parker and his 20 year experience in innovative design, project development and manufactured home sales into the company. Together we now provide comprehensive, customized land and residential home development as NW Green Homes with a total commitment to affordable, efficient and high value manufactured, modular and our trademark 'Site-Built Modular' homes.
