If you have not yet heard about this house from me... you have got to come on down and see this. Potentially one of the most energy-efficient homes in the country, Al Simpler's Discover House is a model home for green living in the Big Bend area.
Part of the National Solar Tour... April 27th, 2008 10am-3pm this home will be open for your viewing pleasure.
Not just green, this home (the builders and the owner) has taken architectural detail, artistic value and aesthetic quality as equally important. This is truly a home fit for a queen (or king).
The home has coconut and sustainably harvested floors, energy efficient appliances, low VOC paints, stamped concrete, low E windows and solar screens, as well as solar panels galore!
Additionally, If you are interested in buying, building, or living green in the Carrabelle area, 6 other lots surround this one all with restrictive covenants requiring green certification, and solar generation. This promises to be one of the most exciting green communities in the country!
As always, if you want to view this or any other green home in the Big Bend area, please feel free to contact me and I would love to help you out!
