THE TYPICAL AMERICAN HOME IS BROKEN

INEFFICENT

The typical home uses a considerable amount of energy. New homes perform only marginally better than those built 60 years ago, and most can't be brought up to high performance standards.

EXPENSIVE

A $300,000 new home actually costs about $868,000 over 30 years when interest, utilities, taxes and insurance are included. That's close to a million dollars for what is, by definition, a very average home.

OLD

Today's homes are built and operated with systems our grandparents used. They are slow to construct, don't accommodate new technology, and are not built for the future.

The resulting home is a significant financial strain on a family, is wasteful of precious and expensive resources, and is ultimately unsatisfying in how it functions and how it supports a modern lifestyle.

Efficiency is at the heart of an Acre home. Efficient use of space, efficient construction processes, and of course, high energy performance standards. The result is a home that functions better, is more comfortable, and is drastically better for the environment. Here are a few of our key efficiency standards:
  • Space-efficient “Right Sized” design
  • Streamlined construction process
  • Passive solar design
  • Super insulated, tight building shell
  • PGX- Proprietary passive geothermal system
  • Carefully selected appliances and equipment
  • Eliminated wasted space
  • 40-60% reduction in construction time
  • Little construction waste
  • 100% more efficient than typical homes
  • Solar PV system supplies all of home’s power needs
  • Net Zero (no gas/electric bill)

TRIPS AROUND THE WORLD

We focus on restructuring the real, all-in, cost of homes in order to make them truly affordable. The result is a savings of $200,000 – $300,000, or more, over 30 years. We can also cut your mortgage from 30 years to 10 or 15 years. Savings of this magnitude can reshape your lifestyle and your future, opening up a world of opportunity.

Method

  • “Right Sized” homes reduce wasted space and dollars
  • Construction time is reduced 50-60%
  • Simplified mechanical system costs less and is more efficient
  • Net Zero performance eliminates utility bills

Result

  • Homes are 35% smaller and cost 35% less to build
  • 100% energy efficiency slashes $150,000 in utility costs
  • Reallocating utility savings to mortgage slashes 15 to 20 years off mortgage
  • 10-15 years later, no mortgage, no utility expense= freedom
