First on the Block

LEED Platinum Net Zero Ready home

First on the Block custom spec home

The Project

This LEED Platinum certified home was built as a spec home, and the clients purchased the home while it was under construction.

The homeowners wanted to achieve as close to a Net Zero Energy standard as possible, so they installed solar panels on the roof two years after they moved in.

Project Size

Total square feet: 3800


New custom home built on spec. The existing home on this site was torn down and two condos were built as a duplex on the site. This home is the larger of the two condos.
