A Net Zero Home
It may seem impossible to accomplish in the Adirondacks, but a dedicated team of people – a homeowner, a builder, and LEED consultants – was able to successfully design and build a Net Zero house, where the total amount of energy used on the site is equal to the amount of renewable energy being produced.
Net Zero Home Part I
“That’s kinda outta my league,” is how one of the project’s lead builders first thought of Net Zero. See how he made the jump to building a house that’s one hundred percent zero.
Should You Get LEED Certified?
Our owner had his doubts but discovered a way to see differently through LEED certification.
Making Your Own Power
How one owner figured out how to build a house that turned the electric meter backwards.
Making a Truly Tight House
Our crew shows how they built a house that would allow fresh air inside but not heat the outdoors.
How Your Site Matters
The builders had never worked with a site plan on this scale. See how they learned to use the site to make the house cheaper to maintain and operate.
Net Zero Home Part VI – More for Less
Net Zero doesn’t mean zero money left in your wallet. Most manufacturers are responding to increased demand by businesses to lower energy costs for their buildings. As a result, many Net Zero building supplies are becoming the new normal.
