Right on the heels of the sale of Beachaus I, we are pleased to announce that Beachaus II is now fully furnished & available for sale. Beachaus II has also qualified for LEED Platinum status, and has achieved an amazing Energuide rating of 86. Take a moment and check out the HD Video tour, or visit our open house Sunday from 1-4pm.

Over the past four years we have been following the development of a number of single family “green” homes in Portland, Oregon. Portland pretty much boasts the highest concentration of certified homes (ie: LEED, Earth Advantage, Energy Star) in the northwestern US. As these homes have been built, sold, and even resold, a strong pattern is emerging that the resale values of certified green homes dramatically outperform standard non-green homes of similar age and size.
According to the Earth Advantage Institute, existing homes with sustainability certification sold for an amazing 30 percent more than homes without. This isn’t an overnight phenomena, as the resale data shows the values have been increasing year over year, for the last 4 years that they have been able to track the data.

We feel that this is great news for our prospective home buyers. Not only do they have the knowledge that they live in a low-impact, ultra efficient & high quality home – they can also be assured that they made a wise investment from a future resale perspective.
Great article in Business In Vancouver’s “BC Tech” Magazine today about our LEED Platinum Beachaus project in White Rock. Check it out below or click here to read the full publication, the article can be found on page 23 in the “Construction Goes The Green Way” section.
It’s been a busy busy week around the White Rock jobsite. To compliment the new photos and virtual tour we had done of Beachaus I, the amazing videographers at ImageYa came by to film an HD Video tour for us. The result is very cool, the subtle motion and amazing camera angles truly capture the subtle elegance, yet warm feeling of this amazing modern home. Take a look & let us know what you think!
