Here's another fascinating home by ZeroEnergy Design (see previously covered Truro Residence). It'scurrently under construction, with foundation, framing, and sheathing complete — the rest is on schedule for completion in Fall 2009. The 2300 square foot home features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a combination yoga studio/art room for the owners. The lakefront home features strategically placed windows that both provide a view of water and take advantage of passive solar heating and lighting. Some of the other planned green features include:
- A living green roof
- Zero electricity
- Grid-tied PV system
- Energy recovery ventilator
- On demand hot water
- Whole house allergen filtration system
- Low to No VOC interior materials
The home has been registered with the USGBC and is seeking an unspecified level of LEED certification. It's a great looking pad with a clever mixture of both indoor and outdoor spaces for whatever the occasion. We'll keep you posted with this Modern Lake House when it's complete.
