The ultimate eco-house? October 8, 2006

Posted by Al in : clever,cool,design,home , trackback

This is an excellent bit of house design. The house itself looks like a standard 3-bedroom house you might find in any well heeled neighbourhood. It has a slightly modernistic design and an oval swimming pool overlooked by some big glass curtain wall. But this house actually produces surplus electricity from it’s solar panels, it recycles it’s waste water and produces it’s own gas from what other waster there is. It’s designer reckons he may never have to pay another utility bill again. (What’s even cleverer is that he is a university professor who got his students to help design and create the house, and if he was really clever he got it all paid for as well). Anyway there are a lot of details available here and some more details and pictures here.
