The two-story, 3,800-square-foot luxury house will include modern amenities, a screened porch and a 2.5-car garage and will sell for approximately $600,000.
Ground on the home was broken in April and it is scheduled for completion in August.
The home is a demonstration project for the Department of Energy’s Building America program.
“The concept is simple” said the home’s builder, Jim Sargent, who is a principal at AndersonSargent Custom Builders LP. “By using clean, renewable energy sources that reduce pollution and help sustain a healthy environment, the zero energy home is the future for the American home.”
The house was designed by architect Peter Pfeiffer, who specializes in “sustainable” or “green” building practices, and is considered one of the leading experts on passive cooling strategies and radiant barriers. Since 1987, his firm has completed more than 400 commercial and residential projects that conserve resources and minimize pollution. Last year, Pfeiffer’s home in Austin was named “the greenest home in America.”
