Perfectly Green! Architect Scott Edmonston's true passion is green construction - designing homes that function well as living spaces and have small carbon footprints. It was nothing less than expect, a total dream for Scott to fulfill his passion by designing a dream home to fit their home/professional needs. A huge bonus to this compact efficient home is the proximity to the beach -When it came time to design a combination residence/office for himself and his wife, Jen, he put that passion into action. The result, they agree, is exactly what they wanted; an environmentally efficient, very functional home.Not all of the home's green features are focused on saving electricity. There also are barrels to collect rainwater for irrigation and a planted swale in the side yard to allow rain to seep into the ground, rather than rushing into the street - and on into the Inland Bays Watershed, carrying with its pollutants picked up along the way.The solar system generates electricity for sale back to the power company. Scott describes the house as -net zero-, meaning that the solar panels generate at least as much power as the home uses.Even before the addition of the panels, the home's average monthly electric bill was around $100. For warmth in the winter, Scott designed the structure to have plenty of southern exposure, pushing it toward the northern property line to keep it out for the shadow of the next door house. I the summer, interior and exterior shades keep out the sun. In addition, the many large windows can be opened to catch cooling ocean breezes. The house is also well-insulated and has an efficient geothermal heating and cooling system. This home is absolutely extraordinary; between location, incredible design and efficiency - This would be a great beach home for summer, year-round and/or a professional home office. Both the architect, home, design and builder have a long list of accomplished awards
