The owner of Portland, Oregon based Neil Kelly Co., a design and remodeling firm with a portfolio of environmentally responsible projects, Tom Kelly and his wife Barbara Woodford decided to built a mountain retreat for their family which would inspire others to build sustainable homes. Tom felt that “manufacturers won’t create sustainable products without demand, so it’s important for us to keep moving them forward”.
The 2,000 square foot home, which was completed in 2006, is as cutting edge today as it was eight years ago. They chose Alaska based architect, Liz Olberding to design the home, which has a great deal of their personal input and preferences. The result was the first West Coast Leeds Certified single family home.
