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.
