The Solar Farmhouse is a New Addition to Deltec’s Line of Net-Zero Energy Homes

 

It may look just like a traditional farmhouse with an old-fashioned appeal, but the Solar Farmhouse is no ordinary home, especially when it comes to energy performance. Boasting annual energy savings amounting up to $1.9k, the updated design is packed with modern technology that allows you to generate your own energy and achieve net-zero energy.

The Solar Farmhouse contains everything that the classic vernacular farmhouse possesses — a pitched roof, quaint front porch, white wood siding and simple lines — updated with a slew of energy-efficient features, including a passive solar design with a photovoltaic roof and an air-tight building envelope.

The two-story zero-energy home spans 2029 sq.ft and contains 3 beautiful bedrooms, 2 spacious bathrooms, a 128sq.ft covered front porch, and plenty of storage space. Its open plan and 10ft high ceiling allow the interior space to be well ventilated.

Deltec also provides energy modeling to help homeowners select the best energy-efficient features for their home’s specific climate. The bare bones shell of the Solar Farmhouse starts at around $62,000, while a finished home will likely range between $300k-400k.
