The recognized kitchen is part of a home that was designed to achieve the LEED for Homes Silver rating and includes such green features as solar thermal water heating, solar shading, low-e clad windows, Energy Star appliances. The kitchen is integrated into an open floor plan that maintains visibility through the home to mountain views and includes interior features of rustic oak floors and interior doors stained to a warm gray, stained T&G ceilings paired with heavy timber framing, natural stone and wood countertops, and natural stone and ceramic tiles.
