The Goldenrod Project – 2007 Grand Aurora Winner
This prototype green rebuild transformed a 1,000 square-foot postwar two-bedroom/one-bath block-home into a 2,100 square-foot three-bedroom/three-bath energy-efficient luxury home.
The Goldenrod received the Southeast Building Conference’s 2007 Grand Aurora Award. In 2008, MGB received the National Professional Remodeler of the Year Award for Whole-House Green Remodel.
Florida’s first certified green remodel is a prototype for sustainable design.
When Grant Castilow and Steve Ellis began to remodel this house, they did not anticipate the attention the project would bring. Nor did they realize MGB (formerly MyGreenBuildings) would set a benchmark for “green” construction and remodeling, and not just in Sarasota – in the entire state.
