Dave Porter's Projects

  • Going Green at the Beach

    • August 2004 to Present

    Our personal home which is also a deep-green, demonstration home which earned 5 national and regional green certifications, national and regional awards and national and regional media attention.

    “Small lot, big attitude” perfectly describes this challenging project: a ramshackle, 100-year-old beach cabin reinvented as a model for green living. Starting with the cabin’s deconstruction (over 80% was salvaged or recycled), the project incorporated the owners’ passion for beachfront living in a sensitive marine environment with the goal to recreate the Arts and Crafts cabin as a deep green demonstration project.

    As owners/developers, we were committed to building to—and exceeding—the standards for six different local and national green building certifications. That commitment led to stringent preconstruction energy analysis and guidelines for the decision-making process for including energy efficiency features all along the way. Every process and product was measured against these standards. Geothermal and solar power, radiant floors, and windows with mechanized awnings combine energy efficiency with cozy comfort and stunning views. Creative use of the 30-foot-wide lot allows terraced gardens and space for entertaining, while a vegetated roof and pervious concrete protect Puget Sound by filtering stormwater runoff. Water conservation was additionally addressed through pervious concrete, living landscape roof segments, and rainwater catchment barrels. In an effort to support energy conservation a combination of reused, reclaimed, recycled and recyclable products was incorporated.
