“My wife and I had a main focus of balancing cost with responsible stewardship; reducing our energy consumption and carbon footprint. We understood that the upfront costs, versus a long-term financial plan of dramatically reducing utility and operating costs would provide a better long-term investment. We are excited to be able to live the dream of owning a beautiful, comfortable, low consumption custom Net-Zero home, while achieving our goal of a balanced conscious lifestyle.”
