Now there is a new community that is taking it to the next level…a net-zero level that is.

Green Acres is a newly developed community (2 houses so far) where the owner John McDermott is building each home to be net zero.  His vision for the homes is to show how you can still live sustainably with all the modern luxuries in 3,000 square feet! Featuring geothermal hvac (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), solar panels, a passive solar design, drip irrigation for his veggie garden, and furniture all designed by John…you’ve got tons to explore at this stop!
