What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

The home was constructed from reclaimed trestle wood and insulated with straw bale. All windows are triple-pane. Although it is grid-tied, the home can be comfortably operated via an array of solar panels, both fixed and sun-tracker, a wind turbine and tulikivi wood stoves. All roofs are designed to maximize rain/snow melt water collection to be used for both culinary and in-floor radiant heat use.

Property Description

The home was designed for self-sustained living from natural, recycled and sustainable resources. While it is grid-tied, the home can be comfortably maintained through all seasons with the photovoltaic and wind turbine systems. Rain water/snow melt water collection provides all of the culinary water as well as the in-floor radiant heat. A barn and green house with automated windows provide the infrastructure for year-round production in addition to the 20 USDA Certified Organic acres with water rights. Home is also available on 10 acres and/or additional acreage is available. Please contact list agent for more details.

Neighborhood Description

The property is very private and surrounded mostly by large acreage parcels. There are a few dozen homes nearby in this rural setting.
