HGTV’s Green Home 2009 Sweepstakes

Share this on:

Tune into a special episode on HGTV tonight to view the eco-chic 2009 Green Home in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  The latest and greatest in green building technologies and materials were used to build this custom, fully-furnished home.  The 2400+ square foot Spanish contemporary will go to one lucky winner this summer.

Native plants and drought-tolerant landscaping complement the home’s exterior.  An Energy Star rated metal roof tops the home and a vegetative roof protects the garage.  Environmentally sensitive decking materials were used in the backyard.  The gardens will provide the future homeowners with their own home-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables.  A drum composter will make turning food scraps and yard waste into a rich soil amendment that will allow the gardens to thrive.

Recycled and reclaimed materials and were used throughout the home, like the engineered hardwood flooring that contains 50% recycled content and is made in the USA.  Pictured here is the living room which contains lovely driftwood-framed mirrors, among the room’s many green elements.  Furnishings and windows are treated with natural fabrics.  Even the flat screen LCD television has energy-saving features.  Solar tubes and energy-conserving compact fluorescents light up interior spaces. The kitchen and bathrooms boost lots of energy- and water-conserving appliances and fixtures.

Visit HGTV for tours of the house and to enter the sweepstakes, which runs from April 17th through June 5, 2009.
