E cient site speci c design to create a low energy home translates to an annual reduction of between 10 and 20 metric tons of CO2, the equivalent of removing two to four cars from the road each year.
Materials and Resources
1 High Quality Shop Fabrication. Components pre-assembled within a controlled environment.
Sustainable Sites Indoor Air Quality
2 3
Local Materials. Use of local materials minimizes energy used in their transportation to the job site.
Waste reduction through construction methods, modular design and on-site recycling.
1 Site Speci c Design. Appropriate 1 site orientation for solar systems
and microclimate.
2 Reduced site disturbance and
erosion during construction through 2 prefab installation.
Moisture control using “breathable” exterior walls and interior venting. Construction does not support mold growth.
VOC Control. Use of low VOC paints, adhesives, sealants and wood panel products.
3 Permeable paving shaded by trees reduces water runo  and reduces heat absorption.
Water Ef ciency
3 High quality air  lters for forced air systems.
4 Garage Pollution Protection. No air handlers in garage. Separation walls are well sealed.
Clean burning  replace and  re pit.
Energy and Atmosphere
4 Durable Construction. Stained
concrete, hardwood  oors, high
quality window and door systems. 1
Rainwater harvesting used for landscaping reduces water needs up to 50%.
