Building Above Code - HERS Ratings (a note from Martha's Vineyard)

by Rose Ryley Courcier, NAR GREEN Designation, Sandpiper Realty

On a recent muggy July morning I walked up through some heavily landscaped hedge screening, typical of an Edgartown Village property, to find another usual summer site on Martha’s Vineyard: homeowners lounging poolside by their brand new guesthouse. They were enjoying late morning coffees while their golden retriever Stella pounced around the new decking and perfectly sodded lawn. I introduced myself, “Rose from Sandpiper Realty ... I’m here to meet with Ben and Heather.”

The homeowner excitedly jumped up and welcomed me into her home like any other friend stopping by to admire the recently completed, totally polished two bedroom guest house, complete with massive second story deck, and framed by a full tennis court. We glided effortlessly from the outside in. Upon nearing the floating steps leading down to the lower level, she yelled out, “Rose is here, she’s wearing shoes!”
“No shoes!” I heard from another voice that bounced off the walls below.
