Design Team 2.0

The ABC Green Home 2 copy.0 Logo

The project team at the ABC Green Home is striving to make the 2.0 model more sustainable and more energy efficient. The first model (ABC Green Home 1.0), exuded efficiency and excellence. It demonstrated that a net-zero energy home can be not only affordable (A), but easily buildable (B) and certifiable (C). The ABC Green Home 2.0 will demonstrate the same values in a multigenerational two-story home.
