TC Legend Homes built Seattle’s second Built Green Emerald Star home, with three levels and 3,160 square feet, in West Seattle. Andri Kofmehl and Veena Prasad live here, along with their twin toddlers and Veena’s mother; the lower-level accessory dwelling unit is rented out — to increase density, income and influence. “We’re trying to educate our guests [about sustainable living] as well,” says Andri.
