If we want to keep Hawaii more environmentally sustainable, we should build more eco-friendly houses.
Hope you can find some design inspiration from this simple design house with energy efficiency in mind.
The house is intended to minimize its carbon foot print, by providing solar electricity for heating and other usages on one hand and ultra-efficient means of constructions to maximize conservation. A vegetable garden separated the deck from the adjacent Solar panels. The Electricity generated by the sun keeps the house warm via the radiant floor heating system during colder months and charges the family electric car.
