Creek Cove Xing Residence completed!

Creek Cove Crossing residence is build on a beautiful wooded lot with grand old oak trees to give plenty of shade in the summer.

The residence is on full rainwater collection system and the water storage is hidden under the house.

The combination of ICF walls and the SIPs roofing system give the house an energy efficient building envelope.

The roof is designed for solar panel installation if the owner so desires. This would make it possible to get very close to net-zero energy consumption.
