The cooling system for the home is provided by the ground source heat pump. This home is made to capture heat put off from everything electric, hot water, body heat and solar gain. Combining the location with the insulation and windows make this a very quiet home. The home consists of mostly laminated wood flooring with some tile and vinyl making the it a low maintenance floor. This home can be readily made into a zero energy home by adding renewable energy. The garage is 26 x 26 with R-10 insulation under the slab. The house and garage both have 9′ walls. The home has a holding tank installed that is set up to accept a mound septic system. There is also plenty of space available for more out buildings in yard.
