SPECIAL INFORMATION

This home was built with a passive solar design and appropriate materials for both sustainability and health of the occupants. Efficient lighting, appliances and design reduce energy use by approximately 45% as compared with neighboring homes. Considerate selection of materials and ventilation design ensure that allergens were not introduced into the home during construction, will not easily enter the home, and will be effectively removed if they do exist.
