The 1,447 square foot residence, which includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is full of sustainable features.  Solar photovoltaic systems are placed on the roof, while a high-efficient electrical heat pump and natural cooling system create a comfortable atmosphere inside.  Energy Star appliances in addition to water efficient faucets, appliances and toilets are used while FSC-certified wood cabinets with recycled paper counter tops decorate the kitchen.  The floors are made of recycled cork and reclaimed lumber while the double 2×4 framed walls with foam insulation incorporate high-efficiency windows optimized for daylighting.
