Construction of the first home at Pringle Creek Community has begun! This “cottage home” will be a leading example of green home design. It will be 25% more energy efficient than a typical home built to the current energy code requirements—by using special framing, geo-thermal heating, natural ventilation and other means.

This cottage will be featured on the 2007 Tour of Homes, in June. It won’t be too long before one or more of the other types of homes–Row House, Tall House, Side-by-Side, Net-Zero, and Live-Work—will be under construction.

Wow, the first home. In a few years, when there will be many homes, I think this one will still be special to me.
