Holy super insulated Batman! This house was built with energy efficiency in mind from the ground up. The walls are built as an ''Arctic Wall.'' This design was developed by the Cold Climate Housing Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Some of the greatest minds in cold weather construction developed this design. The walls are 18'' thick with R-65 dense packed cellulose! The radiant heated slab foundation has 8" of foam insulation underneath it! And the attic was built with 24.5" of cellulose for an R-90 rating! There is efficient LED lighting and the boiler runs off propane. This house is so incredibly insulated and efficient it is unreal. Check out the utilities history. Over a 22 month period this house averaged about 20.2 gallons of propane per month and the last rate paid was $3.63 per gallon.... That is about $75 a month to heat this house! The electric bill averaged just $71 a month! The details and finishes in this house are well done. The flat wall sheetrock finishes are high quality, the appliances are stainless, the windows are triple pane, and the list goes on. The house was also designed with handicap accessibility in mind. The bathroom has a stained concrete finish with no raised lip into the shower stall and the doors in the house are extra wide to better accommodate wheel chairs. This 3 plus acre parcel is surrounded by the Chena Flats Greenbelt conservation land. You will never have neighbors with exception to the local wildlife.
