This home aims to show that good design can be affordable and sustainable. A base model would be offered with durable, moderately priced materials, appliances, and finishes.
Options shown would include floor to ceiling glazing or fold-away patio doors, high-end appliances, PV and Solar Hot Water panels, rainwater collection for landscape irrigation,
a hydronic radiant slab, Kalwall partitions, and materials such as bamboo plywood cabinetry, polished/etched concrete, and richlite/paperstone countertops.
In short, the owner has a base model, much like an automobile, and can customize this residence to suit their needs, tastes, and desires to reduce their own carbon footprint.
