The cultural heritage of Georgia’s rural farming community and the opportunities of new technologies are merged in their design.  Wide porchers, generous overhangs and a metal roof with the cupola are coupled with solar film over a solar thermal system, a geothermal system and an advanced communications and control system that will save time, natural resources and energy.

This demonstration home and associated buildings and land is an educational and research facility, and also serves as a residence for the program’s graduate students.
