Why Sustainability and LEED in 2010 renovation?

When we bought the property in 1992 our uninhabitable 750 sq. ft. servants’ quarters/garage was falling down. We chose to save it, not only because it’s a charming, historic structure, but also because adapting an existing building to a new use is more sustainable than tearing it down, sending it to a landfill and starting over with new materials. We plan to own this property for a long time, so energy efficiency makes financial sense for us, plus we’ll be healthier and more comfortable. In addition, we hope that by attaining LEED Platinum status (awarded by US Green Building Council), the project will serve as an example and a teaching tool for 'best practices' in sustainable design and construction, thereby increasing the quality of sustainable practices in Middle Tennessee. The LEED process ensures that all systems are designed, installed and tested for effectiveness, and that they actually deliver a higher standard.

Little House Nashville was awarded the "Green Star Award" from US Green Building Council, June 2011.


Little House Nashville was recognized for historic renovation by Nashville’s Metro Historic Commission, and is in line to be awarded Platinum Certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) through US Green Building Council (USGBC) for sustainable design and construction. 

• Quality Over Quantity – The house is small, but it works – and well. We took 750 sq. ft. of history and gave it a modern spin on functionality while retaining the best of its character. 

• Cradle to Cradle – Reclaim, Restore, & Reuse. Most construction materials were saved from the landfill and are now enjoying a second life. 

• The 50 Year Plan – We tried to envision every possible use of this structure for many decades to come and design accordingly. Universal Design ensures access for all occupants.
Efficiency and Sustainability


• Geothermal HVAC W/Radiant Heat – We use the earth to cool in the summer and heat the concrete floor in winter. 
• Soy Based Spray Foam Insulation – Perfect for this situation, spray foam fills in all the cracks old homes inevitably have. 
• Low flow water fixtures, tank less water heating, efficient windows, and more decrease energy consumption.


• Reclaim – We deconstructed a garage, scoured salvage yards, and reclaimed our own demolition materials in order to create a highly aesthetic space with minimal environmental impact. 

• Restore – We didn’t tear it down! It would have been easier, but it definitely wasn’t as sustainable. Restoring existing buildings preserves history and conserves materials. 

• Reuse – Siding became our ceiling. A floor is our countertop. Old screen doors open to a pantry. Thinking creatively allows for unconventional uses of conventional materials.
