Pringle Creek LEED Certified Home
We completed this high performance and highly energy efficient home in March 2015, and it received LEED Platinum certification in September 2016. The home is located at 1884 John Muir Circle SE in Oregon’s celebrated and revolutionary sustainable community, Pringle Creek, in Salem, Oregon.
The home offers four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, an attached garage and a number of energy-efficient amenities. A spacious kitchen and living area feature gleaming wooden floors made of sustainably-harvested bamboo, nickel finishes, modern attractive lighting, and large windows usher in natural light.

About Pringle Creek Community: Nature. Community. Innovation. Sustainability.
Sustainability is the guiding principal of this groundbreaking new home development, with every aspect designed around nature and community. Highly-efficient, LEED-certified homes share 12 acres of parks and open space, creating a community that is both beautiful and healthy to live in. Pringle Creek Community features walkable neighborhoods, a meandering creek and wetlands, a vibrant community plaza of preserved and re-purposed historical buildings, community gardens and open green space for all to enjoy. This combination of preserving the natural environment while adding community amenities and a variety of housing options creates a unique opportunity for those seeking a livable community setting.
Homes will be designed with front porches to encourage neighborly interaction. Most garages will be accessed from rear or side alleys instead of the usual front yard. Small groups of cottages will cluster around a common green area, and some homes will rise on hillsides to access views of the Cascades. Each neighborhood will orient towards either the creekside, gardens or open spaces. One neighborhood will consist entirely of net-zero energy homes. All parts of the community will be connected by paths and street-scapes that encourage biking and walking.

- Village Green: Pedestrian-friendly, plaza atmosphere surrounded by crushed granite and Aspen trees. The perfect spot for games, picnics, outdoor receptions, entertainment and more.
- Painters Hall: Cafe, community center, office, art gallery and event venue.
- Greenstreets: Porous streets allow rainwater to filter back into the aquifer. Rainfall is absorbed by the streets, where it is slowly reabsorbed back into the ground and can be released into Pringle Creek during summer periods of drought.
- A ground-source Geo-thermal loop keeps ground source water at a constant temperature. This method of heating and cooling is 300-400% more efficient than a gas furnace.
