Builder Adam Bearup and designer Eric Hughes were gunning for it from the start—the prestigious Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for a home they recently completed in Onekama.  Days ago, just as a feature story on the home in our May issue of Northern Home & Cottage was going to press,  Bearup and Hughes received word that the home had won the Platinum. There is only one other Platinum certified home in Michigan and only 22 others in the country. The home will be open for tours at this year’s Michigan Energy Fair in Onekama, June 27-29.
