The CEO of a major home improvement business called Glasshouse, Shannon Bloemker remodeled a mid-century house that achieved the first LEED platinum certification in Piedmont, California. Pouring 15 years of experience with homerenovation into the project, Bloemker used her own house as a testing ground for sustainable design.
Bloemker preserved much of the original look of the house, built in the style of mid-century modern, while giving it a beautiful modern makeover. She used natural and recycled materials and sent 90 percent of the construction waste from the redesign process to a housing non-profit for reuse.
