Beyond the Home
Sustainable practices at Habitat Kent means going beyond the four walls of a home to reach the critical aspects of a sustainable life—health, affordability, and access.
One of the ways we do this is by implementing green building practices. While all of the homes we’ve built since 2007 are LEED-certified, in the fall of 2021, we took our sustainable building to a new level and completed our first-ever all-electric home (pictured above). During this first Carbon Footprint Build, we also examined the carbon impact of our build process, working with local builders and students, and are eager to share what we learned with the community and continue with more all-electric builds.
