USGBC Minnesota is in its third year of supporting local nonprofit developers who are rehabbing and restoring foreclosed or abandoned homes in the Twin Cities.

Dynamic Green Home Version 4 is being developed by PPL. Sean McGloughlin, who has created a nonprofit with the goal of building Zero-Carbon homes, will serve as general contractor.

This turn-of-the-century brick home is in the heart of the Green Homes North initiative. A new porch, deck and garage will be installed at the home. The garage will hold solar panels, and the home will be insulated and air sealed to very high specs.
