IndigoMODERN Green Townhouses

There’s something about modern townhouses that I’m just drawn to.  Like these here in a community called IndigoMODERN.  IndigoMODERN is being developed in two phases with a total of 22 residential units.  Phase one had eleven units and nine are gone already.  The remaining two are being sold in the $299 – $350k range.  Better hurry (if you can get a loan)!  Designed by Rob Paulus Architect, these 1800 square-foot homes are uniquely green.  Make sure to check the photos below:

IndigoMODERN homes come with a TEP Guarantee, which basically involves inspection of insulation, construction, and mechanical systems to provide up to ~35% savings on annual electrical bills.  IndigoMODERN guarantees that heating and cooling costs won’t exceed $42.08 per month, based on a 12-month average.  In addition, residences have some of the following green features:
