This post-Civil War era U Street rowhouse has been renovated to be more sustainable and energy-efficient. With 11-foot wide interiors, the home would fit into our roundup of skinny houses. The 870-square foot house has solar panels, energy-efficient appliances, and PaperStone countertops, which are made from recycled paper and cashew-shell oil. See more of Otto Condon's U Street rowhouse in The Washington Post's "Turning on the light: Clever remodel sets a dim D.C. rowhouse aglow" and find out how the renovations are cost-efficient in "Measuring the renovation in cost and in impact."
