The RainShine House in Decatur, Ga., designed by Robert M. Cain Architect has achieved, and exceeded, the highest level of “green architecture” possible through the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes Pilot Program, namely, LEED Platinum.

One of the most important credits given this home was for extraordinary performance in the selection of homeowner and environment-friendly materials from salvaged, locally-sourced, recycled materials and those with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Each material represents lower energy investments, lower contribution to off-gassing and environmental pollution, reduced energy investments in shipping, enhanced durability, etc. The RainShine House is the first LEED Platinum house in the Southeast.

Meld USA’s ecoX eco-sensitive concrete material was used on the countertops for this project. The color was “Natural” with Tri-blend 100% post-consumer colored glass.
