Each week we spotlight 2 local companies we think you should get to know better!
Minnesota GreenStar is 3rd party home certification program for greening your home whether you are building a new home, adding to your existing home or remodeling a kitchen. Not only was it founded by locals, for locals, it is a non-profit organization run by passionate volunteers who care about how the homes we all live in are built, maintained & restored.
MN GreenStar values:
- Achieving sustainable environmental outcomes with integrity
- Respect for both the built and natural environments
- Heathy, durable and economically viable homes
- A holistic – systems based – approach to building
- Accessibility to a broad audience
- Influencing change to add value and transform the built environment
Their “checklist” is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in making your home a safer & healthier place to live. You don’t need to certify your project to use it, download it for free. (We do recommend you work with a professional to get you started as it can be a bit overwhelming at first glance, but it is not necessary.)
Our founder & creator, Michelle, started Spacial Adaptation in 2005 as a Kitchen & Bathroom Remodeling & Consulting Firm in Los Angeles. Now, back in the Twin Cities with her family, she is quickly becoming known for savvy social media marketing to the design & construction trade as well as Eco Design & Consulting. Ever a design fanatic, she often takes on new projects with clients who know her work, appreciate a healthy environment and are fun to work with.
