This home achieves the goals of the design and construction team by protecting and enhancing the natural habitat, designing for optimum use of renewable energy (geothermal and solar), using a unique foundation system, maximizing natural lighting systems, and providing accessible, healthy and comfortable spaces. The homeowners were able to obtain a grant, a substantial rebate and tax credits for the use of renewable energy and energy efficient construction of the home to help them pay the up-front costs. The long-term savings will accommodate their retirement status.
