A Pioneering, Climate-Friendly Home in Cully

Sometime in the late aughts, a pocket of the Cully neighborhood in Northeast Portland became the grounds for a mini, hyperlocal eco-renaissance, led by a group of like-minded neighbors. “We often call it an accidental intentional community,” said one resident. Dubbing themselves the Ainsworth Collective, and spread over the blocks near the intersection of NE Ainsworth and 45th Avenue, this unofficial group would meet monthly in support of living more mindfully with the environment. As such, several members bought land and built pioneering eco-homes that pushed the green technology of the day, seven of which were profiled by us in 2009.

One of those houses, designed by DeBar Architecture and built by W. A. Hughes Construction in 2008, is LEED-Certified Platinum and now for sale. It might draw on the past for its traditional gabled form, but everything else about it, from the rooftop solar panels, to the earthen floor in the living room, are forward-thinking, and aimed at reducing environmental impact.
