The New Paradigm Home From Method Homes Offers a Compact Green Package

Method Homes latest prefab series packs some serious green punch in the latest designs. The home in the photos is called Paradigm, a collaboration between Seattle-based Method Homes and New York-based Bogue Trondowski Architects.

The cedar-clad home is just 722 square feet and well on its way to achieving LEED Platinum certification. It has been designed as both net-zero energy and net-zero water, which is pretty impressive for a home design.

Some of the more notable features include a 4 kilowatt photovoltaic array, greywater recycling system, LED lighting, triple-glazed windows, home automation system, EnergyStar rated appliances, heat recovery ventilation, rainwater harvesting system, ductless mini-split HVAC system, triple-glaze windows, zero-VOC paints and finishes, and superbly insulated building envelope. With a combo like this, it’s well on its way to living building status.

The prototype is still on the market at a price of $249,000. Additional information can be found at Infiniti Real Estate and Development.
