SPECIAL INFORMATION

This ranch style home with a full deep basement consumed less materials than conventional homes using a "whole systems" approach to reduce lumber. The 1235 square foot main level consists of an entry area, great room, dining area, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The full basement is insulated and conditioned but not finished. Construction materials and products were chosen for their durability, local availability, recycled content and benefits associated with the reduction of resources during manufacture or after installation.

Visit the Nebraska Energy Office Green Built Homes web page for more information about Green Built environmental standards and certification.
