The interior of this home will be heated and cooled with a geothermal system as well as a trombe wall inspired passive solar fireplace element. The interior custom millwork will bemanufactured here in St. louis, with trees salvaged, kiln dried, and milled here in Missouri – supplied by MWANZI Green building supply .
This home will be certified GREEN under HBA’s GBI certification (we anticipate GOLD certification).
