Countertop Specialists Project Awarded "Green House of the Year"

Several months ago Countertop Specialists had the unique opportunity to participate in project built by RJ Walter Homes. In a partnership with SMUD, several manufarcturers, and contractors, RJ Walter Homes constructed the second home in all of California to qualify for Platinum Certification under the USGBC LEED Certification program.

The home, which was finished in the Fall of 2008 was recently awarded by Green Builder Magazine, the Green House of the Year award. From a pack of 57 projects from around the nation and Canada, the RJ Walter Homes project was chosen as Grand Winner. The project was highlighted for its "traditional Craftsman architecture and understated interior finishes" as stated in article featureing the project. RJ Walter homes did a great job of blending and eco-concious approach to development with the taste of the everyday home buyer.

As a part of this project, Countertop Specialsts partnered with Vetrazzo and Paperstone to offer countertop surfaces and a fireplace surround. The addition of these stunning green features garnered a great deal of attention from those touring the home.

This was a great project for RJ Walter homes and for Countertop Specialsts. We wish to congradulate the team at RJ Walter Homes for the noteriaty they have recieved for their achivement. Bravo!
