Design Build LLC has obtained site plan approvals for two homes to be built in partnership with the US Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready homes program, one of the first in the Tri-State area.  We are previewing these homes for the buyer who wants a great home with a contemporary open plan, fully integrated tech systems for maximum comfort and environmental responsibility. 

"What is  a Zero Energy Ready Home?"

Zero Energy Ready homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable homes that are affordable to live in. They are homes that are so well sealed,  well insulated, and energy efficient that they produce as much renewable energy as they consume over the course of a year, leaving the occupants with a net zero energy bill, and a carbon-free home.    It has the highest design standards and the energy performance is independently tested and verified.

A variety of incentives give the ZER home buyer the ability to buy a higher quality home due to lower monthly heating and cooling costs, as linked here:
