PRG’s Executive Director, Kathy Wetzel-Mastel, with General Contractor, Anderson Mitchell of Mitchell Construction, inside 1811 Girard, a PRG Green Homes North project on the 2015 MSP Home Tour.
This three-bedroom, 1.5 bath home was built by trusted non-profit developer PRG, Inc. and North Minneapolis based Mitchell Construction as part of the City of Minneapolis Green Homes North Program. With over 1,800 finished square feet, this home boasts an open and spacious floor plan along with space for a future family room, bathroom, and bedroom on the lower level. As part of the Green Homes North Program this home offers many green features including: Energy Star windows, doors, shingles, lighting, and appliances. Other green features include water-conserving plumbing fixtures, low-VOC paints and adhesives, and FSC-certified framing material. Annual energy savings for this home are estimated to be half of what it costs for an average, existing home. Traditional detailing helps this home blend naturally with the surrounding historic neighborhood which boasts a mix of architecture, beautiful parks, easy access to downtown, and close proximity to all the great things city life has to offer.
