First Time Ever Green Event at the Westchester County Center Spring Home Show

"BUILDING BLOCKS FOR AN ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME ™ AT THE HOME SHOW Sponsored by County Executive Astorino and NY League of Conservation Voters Education Fund

 

Maybe you have been thinking about what you can do beyond attic insulation to make your house really energy efficient. Perhaps you are considering solar panels, but are intimidated about the process and concerned about the costs. Or maybe you would like to know how to make your home "greener," but have not had the time to look into it.

 

If so, come to "Building Blocks for an Energy Efficient Home ™ at the Spring Home Show on March 15th at the Westchester County Home Show, Westchester County Center, White Plains, NY.  The event, sponsored by County Executive Robert P. Astorino and the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCVEF), will feature two panel presentations on home energy efficiency, at 1 p.m. and 2:30p.m. 

Murphy Brothers Contracting is pleased to announce their partnership with DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles as authorized dealer/installers in the Westchester Hudson Valley region and southern Fairfield County.  DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles differ from conventional solar panel systems in that they aren't on the roof. They actually are the roof.  Solar Shingles provide the same protection, durability and flexibility as asphalt, cedar or slate shingles. Visually appealing, they are designed to blend with standard roofs and normal home construction.  This is an excellent option for folks who want to take advantage of the environmental opportunity offered by sun's clean abundant energy plus the financially attractive government sponsored tax incentives, but are turned off by the unsightly look of conventional solar panel systems.

The three HOBI Awards are: 

Outstanding Out-of-State Commercial Rehab Project: Quarterdeck at Larchmont Yacht Club (Architect: James Fleming / Project Manager: Vinny Hackett)

 

Outstanding New Commercial Project: pool house & surrounding buildings at Winged Foot Golf Club (Architect: Miller Wright / Project Manager: Joe Zito)

 Larchmont architect, James Fleming, was awarded a 2013 Design Award by the Westchester Hudson Valley AIA Chapter for his recent work on the Larchmont Yacht Club. This project restores the Larchmont Yacht Club's East End. The goal was to restore historic elements after over 100 years of use and alterations, and to create more efficient service spaces - especially day to day food service and event operations. It was imperative that historic sensitivity and functional improvements work hand-in-hand. The verandas were rebuilt from the footings up, dining spaces were reconfigured and renovated, and kitchen and back-of-the-house functions were moved up from the basement to the main floor for better efficiency, all while maintaining the historic integrity of the original club. According to the judges: "The jury found this to be a sensitive and well executed project, particularly the seamless rebuilding of the veranda and dining spaces."

All hands were on deck on Veterans' Day November 11th when Interstate+Lakeland Lumber, Andersen Windows and Murphy Brothers Contracting joined Habitat for Humanity of Westchester (HFHWC) during the Veterans blitz build-a-thon.
