LEED® Platinum-level concept home offers exceptional sustainability,
resilience, durability and affordability

LivingHome exteriorRoseburg Forest Products had its FSC certified RigidLam® LVL, lumber, and plywood sheathing products showcased in the 2014 Greenbuild LivingHome demonstration home at the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo in New Orleans, October 22-24. The 1,550 square foot, three-bedroom, two-bath modular Greenbuild LivingHome meets LEED v4 Platinum requirements and was available to tour at booth 1139 on the floor of the Expo.

The Greenbuild LivingHome, designed and developed by LivingHomes®, features market-ready and replicable design innovations, modular construction systems and a wide range of certified products selected to meet advanced performance criteria for energy and water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, durability, and materials and resource attributes. It is ENERGY STAR® v3 Certified and has been designed to meet LEED® for Home v4 Platinum requirements. In addition, it achieves several of LivingHomes’ Z6 environmental goals, includes a wide range of Cradle to Cradle® certified products, and integrates many of the new International WELL Building Institute certification guidelines.

“The Greenbuild LivingHome is designed and built according to very high performance, health, and sustainability standards,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “The collection of products used in the construction of the home passed a very rigorous selection process."

Roseburg’s FSC certified RigidLam® LVL, lumber, and plywood sheathing products contributed in a significant way to the success of the project.

This unique concept home offers a full range of green building takeaway ideas that can be adapted to projects of all kinds.

Roseburg’s FSC certified RigidLam® LVL, lumber and plywood sheathing products were chosen to be used on the GreenBuild LivingHome 2014 project based on the fact that all of these products could be specified as FSC certified. Roseburg’s LVL and plywood products are also able to support LEED® v2009 and v4 credits for low-emitting materials.

After demonstrating the latest green building technologies and practices at the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the home will be permanently placed on a Make It Right site in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward to become part of Make It Right’s ongoing Katrina recovery efforts.
