Going Street Commons is a vibrant community of 11 modern, zero energy-ready homes in Portland’s Cully neighborhood. In 2020, we provided construction services for the project which Birdsmouth Construction designed. The barn-style homes feature energy-efficient appliances, abundant natural lighting, and building systems and finishes that help ensure healthy indoor air quality all while being part of a community-minded neighborhood. Larch siding from Pioneer Millworks, which works well in both vertical and horizontal applications, offers rot resistance that rivals Douglas fir, making it a great natural option for exterior or interior uses. Each Going Street Commons residence has a private yard with easy access to shared green space and a community garden. A 5,000-gallon rainwater storage tank irrigates native landscaping and garden beds. All 11 homes in Going Street Commons achieved Zero Energy Ready Earth Advantage Home Certification.
