Menlo Park residence wins green award

 

A Menlo Park home will been recognized by Sustainable San Mateo County for its use of environmentally friendly methods in a renovation.

Homeowners Cathy Ricke and Bruce Schena expanded and modernized their 1939 cottage using a variety of "green" methods. They used "cool" roofing, natural lighting and ventilation techniques, recycled and non-toxic materials, among other environmentally sound measures, according to the city of Menlo Park.

The homeowners, along with architect Ana Williamson and Drew Maran Construction, will receive one of three green building awards at a dinner and banquet March 11.
