Eco-Conscious Chevy Chase Abode Fosters Green Thumb

Husband-and-wife John Murphey and Marcie Meditch teamed up to design a single-family home that could appeal to their eco-friendly interests. After tearing down their 1920s Chevy Chase home, they built a geometric modern abode in its place that has twice the insulation of typical homes, natural ventilation, a geothermal heat pump, and solar panels. There's also an electric car charging station for good measure.

The home is so sustainable that it has close to a net-zero environmental footprint. The full story is over at Curbed DC. >>
