Entrepreneur and media magnet Martha Stewart apparently has gotten on board with green home designs. She’s lent her name to an eco focused idea home being built at the moment by KB Home, to be unveiled at the January 2011 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida. This is according to Builder magazine.
The KB Home GreenHouse: An Idea Home Created with Martha Stewart (aka, a mouthful of a title) will become the first net-zero energy, single-family home in the Builder Magazine Concept Home series. This dwelling, besides having its designed influenced by Stewart, will demonstrate to consumers that “this environmentally friendly home not only saves energy and water through the use of solar and thermal systems and meeting EPA’s WaterSense for new homes specifications, but can also save them money for years to come by reducing energy bills.”
“Teaming up with KB Home, one of country’s premier homebuilders, and incorporating Martha’s incomparable style and eye for functionality has been a fantastic experience,” said Boyce Thompson, editorial director for Builder magazine, in a statement. “We’re always looking for new ways to showcase the latest and greatest in building technology and KB Home’s efficient designs and industry leadership in the field of green building have allowed us to do exactly that.”
