Creating A Sustainable Future Through Building Preservation, Green Architecture, And Smart Design

Monday, November 28, 2016

North Chattanooga's Antidote Living is a designer and builder of eco-friendly, artisan homes. Officials said Antidote has set the standard for "Made in the USA" homes with hypo-allergenic interiors free of harmful chemicals and off gassing materials and all products are made in the USA. The homes are designed for those interested in living more sustainability while not sacrificing comfort and style.

"Despite the headwinds created by growing concerns about the cost of building green, a high percentage of home builders and re-modelers are already building green and expect to do so in the future. While home builders and re-modelers report that consumers of all ages are interested in green, the study also finds that consumers age 55 and older are the most important group driving the current green market. The findings also demonstrate that consumers’ association of green with healthier homes leads to even higher potential for growth in the future, as do increased use of renewable technologies by 2018," company officials said.

"Antidote Living designs reflect modern values of functional living and share the look and style of the neighborhood. The building materials and products we source ensure healthy indoor air, a healthy natural environment, and a healthy American economy designs reflect modern values of functional living and share the look and style of the neighborhood. 

"If you’re looking for a home builder driven by the same spirit that’s propelled Chattanooga’s modern resurgence, you’ve come the right place. Chattanooga is a forward thinking and innovative community. And just like the Scenic City, fresh ideas inspire everything we do at  Antidote Living.  The homes we build with you are built to last a lifetime. Knowing that, we see our projects as the front end of a long-term relationship. That’s why we are committed to cultivating strong bonds with our clients, and at the core of those bonds are open communications and professionalism."

Currently in North Chattanooga, Antidote Living has one home left out of the 2016 homes at 925 Lanoka. “Zoned for North Chatt's highly sought after school Normal Park, this home will not likely be on the market long,” said India Cox of Berkshire Hathaway.

Ms. Cox stated that the new home owners of the just sold new home on Worthington sent her a note, "Our first electric bills were around $100 for July and August and I’m sure they’ll be much lower now that the cooler weather is here. We were really impressed by the low bills considering how hot it’s been this summer."

A couple of hours later I went to retrieve the story and – zip! nada! ... (click for more)
