A Green Remodel Yields a "Forever Home"

If you're looking for beautiful and unique remodel ideas, you can learn a lot from homeowner and contractor Iris Harrell. The GreenPoint Rated team caught up with Harrell to ask about the choices she made in completing stunning and sustainable remodel of her 1986 home -- which didn't even have a kitchen when she began the work.

The remodel achieved a GreenPoint Rated certification and includes one-of-a-kind "universal accessibility" features to make it livable and safe for young children and the elderly alike.

In this regard, Harrell's abode is not only a dream home, but a "forever home." Have you ever thought about how to create a forever home? Read on to get started.
