Carl Seville, an Atlanta area-based green builder, educator, and consultant on sustainability to the residential construction industry, is the builder of The EarthCraft/TecHome Showcase Home which will be featured during the 2007 Southern Building Show, scheduled June 20-22 at the Cobb Galleria Exhibition Center in the Northwest Atlanta metro area.
The 2007 EarthCraft/TecHome Showcase Home, which is being presented by the Southern Building Show and two national media partners, Green Builder Magazine and TecHome Builder Magazine, will be a new Tudor-styled home which is an infill project, replacing an existing pre-war house in a developed Intown Atlanta neighborhood. The new home was designed to fit contextually with the existing homes in its neighborhood, while providing the amenities that today’s homeowners demand. Seville said the entire project will adhere to the principles of green building and the EarthCraft House Program in energy efficiency, indoor air quality, sustainable material use and durable construction methods. More information about the Showcase Home, including reports on construction progress, can be found at www.southernbuildingshowcase.com.
Seville, who lives and has his office in Decatur, was the founder and served as vice president of SawHorse Inc., an Atlanta design/build firm, for 25 years. He now operates Seville Consulting, a company with the goal of helping homeowners and building professionals create healthy, efficient, and durable buildings by incorporating sustainable practices into their homes and businesses.
