This house features three silos joined on the south side. It creates more energy than it uses and features a control system that can be monitored remotely. Other highlights include a heating, cooling and ventilation system that uses two loops, one for heating and one for cooling, to allow for instantaneous switchover; and an entertainment system that features touch-screen monitors and speakers throughout the home.
