The John Hudson residence is an extensively renovated house at 910 Westover Drive in Edgewood that was set to become the first LEED-certified "green" residence in Alabama when it was to be completed in September 2008. On June 7, however, a fire destroyed the house while it was still under construction and spread to the rear of the house at 912 Westover Drive.

John Hudson, an architect then with Dungan & Nequette Architects, began remodeling the 2,400-square-foot house for his family of six in 2007. "Green" features incorporated into the design include a gray-water recycling system, thermally-sealed attic and crawlspaces, reclaimed materials used for interior finishes, and special products which help reduce overall energy use. Many products were donated to the project in exchange for the publicity of being used in the first LEED house in the state. Birmingham Bungalow Company served as the general contractor.

Hudson is now the principal of Hudson Architecture.
