This stunning home has so much to share: it marries the look of the New England farmhouse with a mind for the environment. Everything in this home is planned to be earth-savvy, from the radiant heating throughout to the paper-free gypsum on the walls of the master bath to the solar panels on the horse barn. What's more? The place is gorgeous to boot. Read on for more photos and links... This is not your everyday farmhouse. One of the smartest parts of this home is that it's actually built as a small collection of buildings. Instead of opting for a very large main house, the couple built a guest cottage. What's the eco advantage? They can nix power to the cottage when they don't have guests, and prevent wasting that power in the main house.
Not to mention, they built the entire home without toxins; PVC- and formaldehyde-free. One more thing--did we mention that this house and its small outlying buildings are beautiful?
