There’s some great homes across the country being finished with the first i-House design. This one, for instance, was built on a lot in Green Bridge Farm, an eco-friendly development of 25 lots in Effingham County, Georgia. Owner Charles Davis won’t have an electric bill with this net-zero energy home. His butterfly roof has solar PV that generates electricity and powers a brand new Chevrolet Volt (pictured below).
Lots in Green Bridge Farm run between $50,000 – $55,000 and include about 1.2-1.6 acres each. In the center of the project is an organic farm. In fact, Green Bridge has a four-acre space with vegetable gardens and fruit orchards set aside for the community.
The farm is located near Savannah, Georgia. The i-House will be open for tours August 12-13, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, with a Chevy Volt on site as well. Clayton Homes has more information about the tour on their i-House website.
Last we checked, Clayton Homes is still working on i-House 2.0. The company’s putting a lot of work into the details of this new design, and we’ll be excited to share more about it when we find out.
