Old Style Design Meets Futuristic Technology in The Performance House, Greenwich, Ct.

 The Performance House, Greenwich, Ct

The Performance House is a new built ultra-green home in Old Greenwich, Connecticut but looking from the outside this Nantucket style wood shingle homes looks no different than other homes in the neighborhood. Yet every detail in The Performance House was decided with the objective of creating a safe, comfortable, healthy, efficient and durable home. This house of the future is recognized to be one of the most energy efficient homes in the state.

To achieve this third party verification needs to be done and Preferred Building Contractor has done just this. Not only are they going for the highest rating possible but the house is being certified by a number of national green home rating systems:

Starting from the outside in, the white cedar shingles are considered a renewable source and a local material less than 500 miles away (1 day shipping  time) with maintenance free KLEER PVC trim and Marvin energy efficient windows.

The super airtight envelope consists of a rainscreen system under the siding, along with Styrofoam T&G insulation over the Zip wall sheathing system. The insulation system is a new advance package called the Owens Corning Energy Complete System that consists of a spray foam Air Infiltration Barrier and EcoTouch Pink Fiberglass insulation. This system provides the house with almost complete zero air infiltration which will result in considerable lower heating and cooling bills along with much smaller mechanicals.

Some of the other highlights of The Performance House are:

  • GAF Cool Series asphalt reflective shingles
  • 2 foot roof overhangs to protect wear and tear of exterior.
  • Storm water runoff management.
  • FSC certified cabinets and vanities.
  • Water efficient fixtures
  • On demand instant hot water.
  • LED permanent light fixtures.
  • Energy Star appliances.
  • HVAC ducts sealed and tested.
  • No and low VOC paints and sealants.
  • High MERV air filters.
  • Solar Panels.
  • Electric car charging station.

The Performance House is new state of the art, high end home in Old Greenwich, Ct that is current for sale being offered at $2,395,000.

David, I love this home.  If I could, this is what I would build on a beautiful country lot.

With a price tag of over two mill, maybe 'green' means 'greenbacks'.
