Zero Energy, Infinite Appeal

The electric meter spins backwards on sunny days, and spins very slowly at night. The roof has plants on it — by design. This award-winning house (2005 National Association of Home Builders Green Custom House Award) is green, and built to stay that way. Photovoltaic panels on the roof produce as much electricity as the house consumes on a yearly basis. Solar thermal panels heat all of the water and also provide heating. In addition to the energy-efficient, green, and healthy-home details, the house features amazing craftsmanship inside and out.
