The Frank family of four has lived in their house at 829 South Winton Road in Brighton since 2008. Because they model green living through their everyday lifestyle and the changes they have made to their home, they received a Green House Award from ColorBrightonGreen.org.
The ColorBrightonGreen.org’s Green House Award, 18 Maxson Street in the City of Rochester’s Northeast side, caught our interest with due to a surprising transformation that the owner carefully researched and completed in 2007 with documented huge energy-saving results!
The Bailey/Peet Residence has earned the Green Home Award for January 2010 due to the homeowners’ strong commitment to reduce the impact of their home on the environment by focusing on issues of energy usage, landscaping and garden maintenance, transportation, and the need to reduce/reuse/recycle.
The first Green House Award from ColorBrightonGreen.org is given to Ruth Morton’s Cape Cod style home at 179 Maybrooke Road. This 1940’s home on a 1/3 acre lot is surrounded by bountiful, organic flower and vegetable gardens, including raspberries, rhubarb, asparagus, blueberries, hundreds of daylilies and other perennial plants. Ruth lovingly maintains the gardens and fills her camera with close-up photos of her flowers, some which we have included in this report.
