Back in December, we asked readers to vote on a new color for an unusually-bespotted house on Latona at NE 40th St. The home, now in a deep “Segovia Red”, is now for sale.

Fremont-based Green Canopy Homes wrote to tell us they’ve transformed the house into a “Studs-out Builtgreen” home with high-efficient systems, sustainable finishes, energy efficient lighting and appliances, and planted an edible landscape full of veggies and blueberries. According to the company, “this home went from consuming 43,000 kW/h of energy per year to only 15,000! That is a 65% reduction in energy consumption! ”

    I wonder how many kW/h (or the equivalent) it took to do the remodel?

    (Actually, the unit is kWh – kilowatt hours, not kilowatts per hour; both the quote in the original article and I made that mistake)
