SPECIAL INFORMATION

This home is a model for what can be achieved. It has been designed to use up to 70 percent less energy and 40 percent less water than a comparable home of its size and design.

The home maximizes natural light, reduces passive solar heating, and increases the indoor air quality by using eco-friendly products and finishes. The main living area has an open floor plan allowing for increased use of natural ventilation in the cooler months.
