KOMO News’ Melanie Biehl offers readers a preview of our View Haus 5 project:
“View Haus 5 offers striking views of the Cascade Mountains. The modern designed units are a mix of three-story two bedroom/two bathroom and three bedroom/two bathroom townhomes ranging from 1,100 to 1,700 square feet. Unlike many townhomes, the five units that make up View Haus 5 are individually designed, rather than mirror image cookie cutter dwellings.”
Crosscut digs in to the housing boom in Seattle – particularly the green housing boom. Our View Haus 5 project was offered as an exemplary green project, “recognized by the Northwest Ecobuilding Guild for ‘pushing the envelope’ with a lower carbon footprint, thermal comfort and a capacity for cheaper, cleaner energy bills.”
“While they vary in size and layout, all three feature private rooftop decks with gas BBQ piping, double-height spaces, all LED lighting, induction cooktop, zero VOC paints, custom, locally-made cabinetry, high performance European windows from Zola and unit-specific electric car charging. Not a bad selection to choose from for eco-friendly homebuyers.”
