It is designed to be a better home
Who would have thought a few years ago that the concept of Zero Energy would be affordable for the average person. Now it is a reality! Using our 50 years of experience, combined with the latest research, we were able to create a better home. It is better in efficiency, better investment, better environment. Better home – better life.
It makes you independent
No need to worry about rising energy costs. All your heating, cooling, lighting and appliances are powered by the energy your house produces. This energy can be generated by a unique solar system manufactured in the US and maximized by geothermal heating and cooling which reduces the amount of energy needed. More than that, there is potential to even sell your excess energy.That’s independence!
It does not cost extra
With our unique engineered framing system, we did our best to maximize the use of materials and minimize the cost of the house. That is why you are able to have a Zero Energy package in the same price range as a custom built home.
It is made to last for generations
Made with quality materials like pressure treated wood with a 70 year warranty, additional post protectors, 40 year no fade warranty steel, energy efficient vinyl windows, structures engineered for high wind and heavy snow load conditions. Hybrid insulation package. Lab-tested fastener patterns.
It saves extra money
That’s the best part. It is projected that the average household in the next 30 years will spend over $200,000 in energy costs. But with Zero Energy you can save this money and spend them for your family, leisure, education or invest them in the future. Or said another way, you prepay your energy bill and get your house FREE!
It can have any design
The models we have created are energy-engineered and have been optimized for value. But that is just a start for your imagination. Our engineering team is ready to implement your ideas to your own Zero Energy home. Value and Technology are the driving force behind all our development.
It is the concept of the future
Our developing world is rapidly moving toward sustainable living. In the near future more houses will be producing their own energy and will not be dependent on outside sources which are mostly based on fossil fuels. Savings from it allow people to live a better life. This is a major breakthrough in the history of the world. And you can enter the future now.
It uses green energy
We integrate solar systems into our homes because it is the most environmentally safe source of power. You can use it anywhere unlike many other forms of renewable energy. More than that, it does not require ongoing maintenance since there are no moving parts. The latest innovations of solar systems are applied in our buildings.
It uses “State of the Art” technology
BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics), “Hybrid Timber-Frame” system by Borkholder, lab-tested Fastener pattern, ICF foundations (Insulated Concrete Forms), Geo-Thermal heating and cooling systems, Hybrid Insulation System, energy saving windows, air quality monitoring, 40-year no-fade exterior paint system.
It is designed for hurricane, flood, earthquake areas
Because of the unique features of a hybrid timber-frame structure it is designed to withstand hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes. It comes with withdrawal anchors on the structural foundation columns, frame bolted connections, lab tested fastener pattern, and latheral windload stabilizers. We use this technology for our “Global House” series for disaster areas of the planet.
It is friendly with nature
Most of the structure of Zero Energy home uses wood, which makes the house carbon positive. It uses many products that contain recycled content or can be recycled. It uses the energy of the sun which is renewable energy. It can be removed with very little effect to the area that it was built on. It produces as much energy as it uses.
It can be built anywhere
The use of solar energy and optimizing the energy consumption allows our homes to be independent of a utility grid. That means that you can have a Zero Energy cabin in the mountains or a lake house in places which do not have a developed infrastructure and enjoy the nature and conveniences at the same time!
It comes with the best components
We research and find some of the best durable components in the industry and put it together into a sustainable system so it can serve you and your children. We use a lot of components from major brands with extended warranties. Our creed is “Don’t minimize the quality, maximize the usage”.
It is an award- winning product
As one of the entries to the 2010 competition of the National Frame Building Association, our Zero Energy Home received a “BUILDING OF THE YEAR” award. In addition many of our projects have received national awards in the past. This success inspires us more in our innovations and service to our customer.
