The Net-Zero i-House by Clayton Homes was a prefab project that's
unfortunately no longer in production but you can still enjoy this
i-House which was set up at Green Bridge Farm which is an eco-friendly
development in Effingham County, Georgia.
The butterfly roof with solar panels on the structure to the left is
able to collect enough power for the entire home and to charge the
Chevy Volt vehicle shown above.
The owner was able to get a lot in this development to put his home on. One acre lots at the time of the project were available for around $50,000. You can learn more about Green Bridge Farms here.
The other great part about the community is that there is an organic
farm on site with fruits and vegetables for the community. It seems
like a pretty cool place to live and like I always say, I'd like to see
more places like this pop up around the country with available lots for
people like us who want to live smart & small.
With a set up like this you don't have to go extremely small to
enjoy the benefits of living tiny. This home is much larger than most
tiny houses on wheels and you still don't have to worry about too much
cleaning or big bills. Heck, the owner of this one doesn't even pay a
utility bill at all! And there's enough extra to power the Chevy Volt
