An Earth-friendly homestead.
This working gentlemen’s farm is another of The Valle Group’s Passive Certified/Net Zero homes built for an environmentally conscious client in Westport, Massachusetts.
The average wall thickness of this green farm/home is 18″ with an insulation value of R70. It features a 7.6KW solar array and a separate solar corridor leading to a series of greenhouses, a workshop, a guest house and underground root cellar.
To give a sense of the home’s energy efficiency, it is worth noting that the during the harsh winter of 2016, the client never turned their heat on.
