Maryland Green Designer Show Home

The Maryland Green Designer Show Home was a concept brought to fruition by Michael Baldwin and his staff at Baldwin Homes, Inc. This project, started in April 2012 showcases not only the eco-excellence that Baldwin Homes creates, but also their partnerships with unique landscape and interior designers throughout the Washington, D.C, metropolitan area.

Through a series of strategic partnerships, the Maryland Green Designers Show Home will support two local charities’, including: Hospice of the Chesapeake and the Make a Wish Foundation. Upon completion of construction in September 2012, tours and various events will be hosted within the home all to benefit these two wonderful causes. Additionally, the home will be listed for sale, with the split earning from the sale directly benefiting these two causes as well.
