2006 Elton Lane Receives Austin Energy Green Building’s coveted 5 Stars!

2006 Elton Lane built by Risinger Homes, Completed June 2007
I just found out that my company’s first completed home here in Austin, TX got enough points to get 5 out of 5 stars in the Austin Energy Green Building program. It’s not easy getting enough points in their program to get to the top tier. In fact, since the program’s inception in 1991, only 44 houses have been rated 5 stars. Even better, we ranked the 8th highest rated home in the history of the program! Not bad for Risinger Homes’ freshman effort, and dare I say it’s probably the highest rated home ever built speculatively. As of today it’s still on the market but I expect it to sell shortly. Thanks to Peter Pfeiffer, Alan Barley, and Steven Brim over at Barley & Pfeiffer Architects for their amazing architecture and dedication to high performance green construction. I also want to thank my amazing sub-contractors who are the real heroes here.
