Architects at Kaplan Thompson have paired with sustainably minded builders and created modular net zero home designs for under $250,000. With multiple designs to choose from, building green can be affordable and beautiful.
More traditional in style than many modular options, the Modular Zero Home from Kaplan Thompson carefully consideres energy efficiency, water conservation, health + the indoor environment, and passive design elements.
According to the archtiects:
Net Zero homes combine state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction and appliances with commercially available renewable energy systems, such as solar water heating and solar electricity. The combination results in a home that produces its own energy-as much or more than it needs. Even though the home might be connected to a utility grid, it has net zero energy consumption from the utility provider.
With three models ranging from $205,000 for 960 or 1,200 square feet to $235,000 for 1,680 square feet (expandable to 2,200 square feet) these homes bring the idea of green living to the masses.
