Working towards a common goal to live well and build community
In today’s increasingly hot real estate environment, looking for alternatives to single family home buying is a must. Many families are getting priced out of stand-alone single family homes and have had to adjust their expectations to include zero-lot line townhomes and condos. This is especially true for first time home buyers and buyers looking in core areas of Seattle and the Eastside. So what options do people have when they want to purchase a single family home and keep their costs down in this rapidly appreciating market? One such option is currently under construction in NE Seattle.
Homeowner & builder Carl Lind came up with the idea over a decade ago to develop a small community of green homes in his neighborhood of Lake City. Carl and his wife Susan teamed up with their friends Jonathan and Melanie Nuefeld who bought half their property with the intention of redeveloping the one single family residence they shared into a mix of homes that gave them each their own single family unit and met their lifestyle goals for shared community. Many folks dream of building a house with a group of friends or family, but few can put that dream into action. Lind had experience in project management and construction, and he was able to develop a design for the lot at a budget that would be affordable. Lind hired Matt Wasse of Shugart Wasse Wickwire to help them redesign the property to include 4 stand-alone 3 bedroom/3 bath homes with large shared gardens and outdoor spaces that enhance livability and community. The homes will all meet 4-Star Built-Green standards.
Taking inspiration from permaculture design principles, Lind wanted the homes to perform multiple functions. In that spirit, each home is designed with a lower level suite that can be used as part of the home or managed as a separate ADU or Mother-in-Law unit (for 8 total units). This builds in resiliency for the community to grow and also allows flexibility for the home owners’ living circumstances.
In addition to promoting the broad concepts of increased density, intentional community, and resiliency, Lind made sure that sustainability remained a priority as design decisions were made. Sustainable elements include heat recovery ventilators, high-efficiency heat pumps, super-insulated walls, reclaimed materials, Energy Star appliances, no-VOC paint, rain gardens, and electric vehicle charging.
Two of the four units will be available for sale in the summer 2016. The homeowner welcomes anyone interested in living in a green home and working towards a common goal to live well and build community to stop by and visit during the Green Home Tour! 12014 33rd Avenue NE – Seattle, WA – 98125

Visionary builder tops the spec residential home building market with a high tech energy independent home.
by Eva Otto & Susi Musi, Graphics by Wing Yu
February 24, 2016
Who would have imagined 30 years ago that there would be a market for homes that could dismantle intrusive drones, operate with a smartphone, and produce 100% of their own energy?
Meet futurist and home builder, Bob Lodwig. In 1986, Lodwig embarked on a mission to create high performance homes that were energy independent. When young Lodwig encountered “limitations and politics” of the ‘solar’ energy movement, he set out on his own to crack the code on energy independence in the residential market.
“Only when we have a “zero tolerance” for all carbon emissions are we then going to mitigate the effects of global warming, and help the Earth return to a balanced state.”
Fast forward to 2016, to the environmental savvy era where organic, green, and sustainable options exist for everything from cotton to new home construction. But while the environmental movement has accomplished much since the 1980’s, most high tech and modern homes are still energy consumers. A surprisingly few housing types are actually designed to produce their own energy. One of those housing types is the Net Zero.
A Net Zero home uses a combination of alternative energy (solar or wind power) with gas and electricity to produce a net zero balance for the consumer of energy production and energy use. Very few spec home projects go beyond Net Zero. Lodwig’s home, which he affectionately refers to as the “Model S” exceeds Net Zero because it produces its own power and has the option of functioning entirely off of the conventional energy grid. How?
Logwig’s disruptive “Model S” comes with the following features:
Tesla’s new PowerWall Battery system
Solar capacity up to 25 kW of solar panels that allows the home to become a net producer of energy.
Super insulation package that uses advanced 2×8 framing and a Prosecco Cat 5 Exterior Sealant (also used on the Bullitt Center).
If energy independence is not sexy enough, what else makes this home high-tech?
Lodwig wired the energy operations of the home to an app that can be used with a smartphone. This allows the home owner to control lights, control the door locks and even control or ‘program’ their favorite music over the home’s speaker system. The front door ring doorbell is also connected to a video surveillance that allows the owner to see and communicate with anyone at the front door, be it from the office or from on the beach thousands of miles away. Now that’s control.
Finally, the home is also wired to detect and dismantle any drone that comes within 500 feet of the home. Yes, drones aka flying robots.
Seattle’s first “Model S” home in Maple Leaf neighborhood, sold earlier this month for $1,365,000, a top value for the Maple Leaf neighborhood.

Green Guru’s to Lead the “Behind the Walls Tour” of Seattle’s first “EMF Reduced” Rowhome Community
SEATTLE- Isola Homes, Seattle’s leading green home builder and local building biologists to demonstrate key construction techniques for VIDA, the green community design of 15 row homes in the Central district, located at 120 20th Avenue, on October 4, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m..
Unlike a traditional open house, a behind the wall tour occurs near the final stages of construction . Sunday’s behind the wall tour will showcase the “deep green” components of the project such as shielded wiring for the EMF-reduction ‘Quiet Zone’, fiberglass rebar in the foundation, non-toxic materials, and a community designed site plan.
“While all of Isola Homes’ projects are certified “Built Green”, this an opportunity to see, touch, and learn about Seattle’s first electromagnetic field (EMF) reduction project – before the walls are sealed closed , said Dana Stream of Lifestream Solutions; the project’s primary building biology consultant.
Tours will be led by members of the project team including, Brian Byrne (Construction Manager) for Isola Homes; Dana Stream (Sustainable Lifestyle Consultant), Michael Cleveland (Green Building Advisor), and Steve Davis (Environmental Home Inspector) of Lifestream Solutions; Jay Miller (Managing Director) for Alchemy Real Estate; and Eva Otto (Managing Ecobroker) at Infiniti RED.
In addition to a tour of the various building biology components of the building design, Stream will be available to discuss VIDA’s community development program. “Sunday’s tour is also ideal for people interested in learning how healthy buildings help make healthy communities”, says Stream.
Tours are free and open to the public, anytime from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
