546 Edgewood Avenue-Green Homebuilding in Atlanta
Carol and I went yesterday to check out Burke Sisco’s listing at 546 Edgewood Ave. The house is tracking LEED Platinum and is really impressive. From the outside it’s hard to imagine the space that’s inside, but it is really well planned out. The first floor seems to be reserved for a store front/office/retail. The second floor is home to the living space including a kitchen and living room, and the third floor is where the two bedrooms and bathrooms are located. Above that is a wonderful roof top patio with stunning downtown views. It will also feature a garden on the roof that will help serve as insulation. The framing in the house is still open so you can really see all of the components that are going into it. One cool thing that immediately jumps out is the 600 gallon cistern on the main level. Typically you see something like this in the basement or even buried under ground. Anyway, it will collect all water runoff from the gutters and will supply 100% of the water necessary for clothes washing, toilets & landscaping. You can view tons more information and photos on Burke’s website www.EcoHomeGuy.com. Be sure and check it out.
