I’m excited to announce that our latest house in Echo Hills Cottages just qualified for the Platinum level of Green Built Certification. The owner added an array of solar collectors, which pushed our very energy efficient homes to a new level of certification as a “Net Zero “energy home.
As all of our homes, this house starts with ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) for the lower level and SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) above grade. We finish off with spray foam insulation on the roof and very efficient windows and doors. Most windows face south for passive solar gain, and heating and cooling is accomplished through a Mitsubishi mini-split system.
The house also has a footprint of only 1000 sq. ft. and is creatively designed for efficient use of space. It is also beautiful and quality crafted in every way – check it out.
