Completed in 2012, this two-family townhouse unit is Energy Star compliant and has a HERS rating of 45 (uses less than half the energy of a new code-compliant home). While this project had a modest budget, it didn't skimp on on amenities and has state of the art heating and cooling systems, as well as well-appointed kitchens and baths, hardwood floors and more. Designed to meet the new paradigm of green residential living, in which bigger isn't always better, these townhouses provide ample and bright interiors, and will save their occupants precious funds as misers of energy use for decades to come.
