The National Association of Home Builders recently presented its National Green Development of the Year Award to non-profit Thistle’s Blue Vista green and affordable new home development in Longmont, Colorado.

According to, “One hundred of the 198 homes in the community will be permanently affordable to income-qualified working families, senior citizens, and people with disabilities. These buyers also contribute self-help hours to finish their homes.”

Green features include well-insulated, air-tight construction; highly efficient mechanical systems; Energy Star rated windows and appliances; and energy-conserving lighting. The energy efficient homes will save homeowners $22,000 in energy bills over the life of each home.
