Phillies reliever Ryan Madson and wife Sarah have gone green. The couple has hired Main Line's Caledonia Renovations to make the Wayne home they bought in April more eco-friendly.

The couple and their kids won't move in until work is done, which Caledonia's John Kelly expects to take about 10 months.

"We try to keep as much of the existing house there and build from the platform as we can," said Kelly, whose company is re-insulating the house using soybean-based spray foam, installing energy recovery ventilators, a geothermal heating and cooling system, a groundsource heat pump and energy saving lighting, among other energy-efficient improvements. Caledonia are also building an addition to the home.

Madson will receive an award for his eco-efforts, along with Mayor Nutter, City Councilman Curtis Jones and rapper Schoolly D at the Inaugural Manayunk EcoArts Festival Sept. 25 and 26.

The politicians will accept their awards on Sept. 23 at the festival's launch party at Mango Moon (4161 Main). At 1 p.m. Sept. 25, Madson and Schoolly D, who is doing a green rehab to his Gladwyne home, receive their awards on the festival's main stage on Main Street.
