On Sunday, October 20, 2013 Arlington County recognized the builders, designers, and owners of 32 green homes at the Annual Green Home Choice Reception. One of the homes was also named the Greenest Building in the Single-Family home category, in the DC Metro area. The reception was held at a beautiful home that was recently renovated in the historic Maywood neighborhood. Of these projects, 22 are new homes and 10 are renovations. The new homes, on average are projected to be 35-66 percent more energy efficient than a standard home built to the current building energy codes.
