LivingHome’s KTLH1.5 house received top honors this month when the Green Dot Awards announced their recipients for 2009. The KTLH1.5 LivingHome had the distinction of earning TWO awards, taking 1st place in the Design category and 2nd place in the Build category. Designed to a LEED Platinum rating, the KTLH1.5 reflects LivingHome’s Z6 Sustainable Building Goals which outline 6 key objectives that we strive to achieve in both the construction and operation of each of our LivingHomes: Zero Water, Zero Energy, Zero Waste, Zero Emissions, Zero Carbon and Zero Ignorance. This LivingHome was recently installed in Newport Beach, and will likely be the first LEED Platinum home in Orange County.
