CARKEEK PARK, SEATTLE, WA
Grandma’s House is built to net zero standards, meaning that it produces as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis. It features solar panels, a heat pump, radiant floor heat, triple-pane windows, SIPs, rainwater harvesting, an electrical vehicle charger, and a home energy monitor. Dan Allison, Project Lead at Abode, wanted to lead by example and show that building a net zero home can be cost effective. Grandma’s House won the 2015 Green Building Slam Award, co-sponsored by the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild and the UW Integrated Design Lab. Check out Dan's blog HERE.
