Check out the building science behind the Proud Green Home at Serenbe
Many of the secrets of the Proud Green Home at Serenbe are hidden behind the drywall on the inside and the cladding out on the outside.
But builder Luis Imery provides a look at the advanced framing techniques and other building science innovations that go into building this high-performance home.

The Proud Green Home at Serenbe was designed by architectural firm LG Squared and built by The Imery Group to result in an energy rating that is 55 percent better than a similar-sized home built to Georgia’s minimum energy code requirements. With the addition of rooftop photovoltaic solar panels, the Proud Green Home will achieve net-zero, or near net-zero, efficiency—meaning that over the course of a year, it will produce roughly as as much energy as it consumes.
The home is designed to meet Energy Star and EarthCraft green building standards.
