Owen Solar Home
October 2 - October 3
Several years ago, we set out to build the healthiest, most sustainable home that we could, and we were thrilled to have the finished product become the first LEED for Homes v4.1 in the U.S.! Our contemporary farmhouse-style home was recognized as the 2018 LEED Residential Project of the Year by the U.S. Green Building Council nationally and for the USGBC-Arkansas. There are 42 PV panels, which produce all of the energy needed for our 2662-square-foot home as well as for our vehicles: a 2018 Nissan LEAF EV and a 2018 Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid.
