Owners’ Comments:


“Some of the green initiatives we embraced, included soy-based spray foam insulation, high performance energy efficient LED lighting, high efficient HVAC, energy-saving hot water tanks and low-flow toilets and sinks, no VOC interior finishes, Urea Formaldehyde-free furnishings, recycled sheet rock and steel framing, and recycled steel and glass countertops. We are in the review process, and if all goes as projected will be the first LEED Silver salon in New Jersey!”
