HGTV Green Home 2012

After many months of planning, development, construction, and filming we are so excited to share with you that the HGTV Green Home 2012 Special aired this past spring on the HGTV network!

During the showcase, co-hosts took viewers on a visual tour of the home while the house planner and designer shared tips about the eco-chic residence's green construction and design.

Located in the idyllic, sustainable community of Serenbe in Chattahoochee Hills, GA, the home is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom modern Southern farmhouse built by FrontPorch. The home highlights a new dimension of green living that the network was thrilled to present.

Check out FrontPorch’s own Curtis Peart as he discusses the advantages of a “greener approach to framing” as used in the construction of the HGTV Green Home 2012:


FrontPorch is very proud to have been an integral part of the creation of the HGTV Green Home 2012. We would like to thank the team at HGTV, Kemp Hall Studio, Serenbe, our subcontractors, and staff for all of their hard work on this unique project.
