found this green moth on the outside of my house. Small…probably half inch to an inch wide. Looked like a little red on middle of body between wing areas.

Dear Georgi,
This is one of the moths in the family Geometridae.  The subfamily Geometrinae contains the Emeralds, many of which look quite similar to your moth with its green coloration.
