Pearl Platinum Net Zero Home – Murphy Residence

October 1 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm - January 15, 2023 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Full disclosure – I work at Pearl Certification.

I designed and built my high-performing home four years ago. We wanted our forever home – a home that could be a gathering place for our children’s friends while they are attending middle and high school – and a home where my wife and I can age in place. We build the home in an older neighborhood and wanted it to fit in with our community.

Much of what makes the home high-performing is not readily visible. The home delivers comfort throughout the house, great indoor air quality, very low utility bills, and a variety of smart home devices offer fun and convenience. But I do have Hour Tour Cards placed through the house that explain what’s behind the walls. I can show heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, MERV 13 filters, ERVs, and photos of the construction. I can also talk about the experience as a homeowner – especially how our home gave peace of mind during the thick of Covid-19, and how it continued to provide that peace of mind in a variety of different ways.
