Shore house is Net Zero

Pennsylvania-based architecture firm Richard Pedranti Architect is finishing up a Net Zero Energy home on the Jersey Shore.

The Passive House design will save homeowners, a couple from Brooklyn, nearly 80 percent on heating and cooling costs thanks to the high levels of insulation, airtight construction, and triple-paned windows.

Additionally, solar panels on the roof will establish net zero energy consumption by generating roughly as much energy as the home consumes each year.

Components of the home were built in the Blueprint Robotics manufacturing facility in Baltimore, MD, then transported to New Jersey where it was assembled in just three days.

The window installation is now underway at the house in Spring Lake, NJ, with interior and exterior elements being added by a local contractor.

In total, the home will take only 3.5 months to fabricate, assemble, and complete.
