In a list of five "green" homes, Szymt features a listing represented by RSIR's Cassie Daughtrey. Szmyt writes, "Seattle - Located on the shores of Seattle's Puget Sound in the Fauntleroy community, is this eco-friendly creek-side retreat. This custom home underwent an extensive rebuild and total restoration of Fauntleroy Creek which combined create the ultimate Northwest living experience. The owners salvaged much of the original structure including reusing the original old growth cedar siding, and added sustainable products including a new metal roof, metal clad wood windows and a rain-water collection system. Since the completion of the creek restoration in 2007, the Coho salmon have returned in abundance. Otter and eagle also frequent the grounds and the sunsets and moonsets never disappoint."
