Courtney and Kevin Pigford, along with their 8-month-old daughter Alyce, greet guests to a dedication ceremony Thursday at the refurbished house that's their new Jefferson City home. Located in the 800 block of East McCarty Street, the structure was refurbished by River City Habitat for Humanity to be a Green Build home.

Environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient and healthy, the brick bungalow at 802 E. McCarty St. is a triumph of building science and an example for future neighborhood renewal efforts.

The Jefferson City residence is the first remodeled home to be certified green in Missouri under certain national building standards.

And the Historic City of Jefferson recognized the home built in 1913 with its Golden Hammer Award.
