This custom single family home is a modern farmhouse.  It’s a “regenerative house” meaning that it produces more energy that it consumes (HERS negative-8).  Farmhouse is LEED Platinum certified, Energy Star v. 3.0 and has a host of sustainable features.

Architecturally, it features a traditional design with a large wrap-around porch. Inside, it has a sunny, open floor plan, with a gorgeous kitchen and beautiful woodwork.  The house combines an optimal passive solar design, a double wall envelope, “tuned” Energy Star windows, 10kw of solar PV, foam insulation, LED lighting, Energy Star appliances and a ground source heat pump to achieve its extraordinary energy performance.  It uses low flow plumbing fixtures, non-toxic finishes, and Beetle-kill cabinets and soffits to complete its sustainability package.
