The designers made use of the lakeside views by creating a lush rooftop garden. English added that the desire to build an eco-friendly house was an attempt to honor her parents - who built the original home in the 1950s.
"Both my parents valued the environment," English told the news source.
The 2,000-foot house features several energy efficient advantages as well including low-flow faucets, drywells for storm water runoff and high-efficiency lighting. The designers also chose to install bamboo flooring.
