Inspired by a green remodeling seminar, Nash Construction president Gary Nash put his employees to work on making his home green. Located in Delaplane, Virginia, the house was completely remodeled with environmentally-friendly construction and resources. In the room shown here, the salvaged beams came from old textile mills and the fireplace stones were quarried on Gary Nash's property. A foundation-wide drainage system was installed with insulation to minimize temperature changes and water infiltration. More on the house below the jump...

Gary Nash and installed a HEPA air filtration system and used low-VOC glues, paints, and finishes. We love that the bathroom has "natural stone, dual-flush toilets, radiant-heated floor mats." The house is the first EarthCraft-certified home in Fauquier County.
