Welcome to the Absolute Green Homes newsletter.  Every few weeks, we will take you on our journey through one of our largest and most exciting projects yet:  The Beach House Retrofit.


Over the next year this 1932 South Salem, New York home will be transformed into a Platinum LEED certified, Zero Energy Home.  


We received our permit on April 14 and in just 3 short months our team has made significant progress.    


Proposed Beach House


April 2011:  Pre-construction


May 2011:  Second floor framing, attic dormers completed


  June 2011:  Rough framing completed "Peel & Stick" roofing membrane installed


 July 2011:  Foil-faced rigid foam board installation completed.  Kleer fascia installation started 


In the next few weeks our team will be reframing the back side of the Beach House which will feature a full wall of glass doors leading to the patio and lake.   Our next newsletter will feature the stunning transformation of this area, followed by the installation of DaVinci Roofscapes Bellaforte slate roofing tiles. 


Every two weeks through Spring 2012 (our expected completion date) we look forward to sharing with you our progress along with the innovative products, environmentally sound strategies and cutting edge designs that will be part of this unique Westchester County home.
