round Rock Star
Zero Energy Home
This custom home garnered a lot of attention when it was built. It was the first green-rated home in Round Rock.
The home was designed to be net zero. It’s so air-tight, well insulated, and energy efficient that it produces as much renewable energy as it consumes over the course of a year. The homeowners have a net zero energy bill.
It’s not large — just 1,444 square feet with two bedrooms and an open office. But the open, vaulted ceiling great room makes the home feel spacious and comfortable. Windows are placed to bring light and breezes into the home.
