This project is a case study for a marketable, green-built home, elegantly designed and sustainably constructed, with high quality details, materials and finishes. As an infill project, it replaces an underutilized, water intensive lawn in an established neighborhood. The home is Energy Star Certified and features a high-efficiency radiant floor heating/domestic hot water system, and heat recovery ventilation in a structural insulated panel envelope. Many environmentally friendly, recycled, reused and locally available materials were incorporated. This home was featured in HomeWORD’s 2008 Sustainable Homes Tour.

How to Be an Architect

Architects must be licensed before they can practice as an architect or call themselves an architect. There are three main steps in becoming an architect: education, internship and examination.

  • Education: The Montana State University School of Architecture offers a Master of Architecture professional degree that is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite.
  • Internship: Most state architectural registration boards require architectural graduates to complete an internship in order to become licensed.
  • Examination: All states require the completion of the Architect Registration Examination, in order to gain licensure within the 54 jurisdictions covered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB).
