Creekside Net-Zero Home

Natural lighting, a proposed on-site PV array, and a design that allows passive solar heat gain in the winter and shade in the summer are just the tip of the iceberg for the net-zero home. Efficiency is key in the overall design (due to site restrictions as the home is next to a nature preserve), space usage, building envelope, and mechanicals. Overall the home will marry finely tuned energy and enclosure solutions with an environment suited for a creating artwork, woodworking and a generally relaxed retirement lifestyle.
