Zero-Energy Earth Home. HTM, sustainable, natural zero-energy passive solar housing in the 'earthship' earthome style.
The basic design of our high thermal mass HTM™ sustainable housing, passive solar design is presented in the earth home style, but can be easily molded to fit your family's lifestyle and personal preferences, especially the exterior appearance. The open floorplans of our natural, sustainable, earthhome design can be boxed in later for storage, quiet areas, and sleeping spaces. Just keep in mind that as you section the home off, the need for supplemental heat and light is only going to increase. This is the basic nature of low-tech, mechanical-system-free passive solar architecture. We do our best to work with clients on all aspects of design: structural function, passive solar performance, privacy, flow, entertaining, lifestyle, family and caretaker unit considerations.
