The Rebecca Leland Farmhouse

This traditional looking farmhouse hides the fact that it is a modern model of sustainability. Honored with LEED certification, this house uses both passive and solar energy and super insulation from foundation to attic. Panelized construction, low VOC paint, reclaimed flooring and light fixtures, ICF foundation, high efficiency boiler and appliances as well as low-flow toilets allow these homeowners to leave a lighter footprint behind while gracing the landscape with a charming farmhouse fitting of the country region.
