What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Double wall construction (Walls 2x4 outer and inner frames. Roof 2x10 outer and 2x6 inner) with dense packed cellulose insulation results in R values of 40 in the walls and 70 in the roof. Triple glazed fiberglass casement windows (Thermotech) with double low E coating. Window placement on the back of the house which faces due south results in increased solar gain during the colder months (2 foot roof overhang prevents solar gain in summer). Insulated Thermomass ("Reverse ICF") foundation. 5.67 kW grid tied rooftop solar array (owned) consistently produces power in excess of consumption. Rooftop solar hot water with electric on demand assist. Wood heat with electric backup (wood consumption less than 1 cord per year, all wood produced on property). Energy recovery ventilation system provides superb indoor air quality.

Property borders a clear running stream and 500 plus acres of open space (State forest and local land trust properties) with extensive network of hiking trails yet is close to town.
