Anticipating the future of the neighborhood and sustainable home design, Boulder ZED is a new near zero energy home for sale near Boulder’s mean home price. Solar domestic hot water and a 5kW photovoltaic system power this reclaimed ranch house in a typical post war ranch neighborhood. The first floor and majority of the exterior brickwork were incorporated into the new design including a 700 sf second floor addition with new master suite and 2 bedrooms.
Careful daylighting and constant filtered fresh air keep this house both healthy and happy. 3″ Foam wrap over existing framing provides a superinsulated assembly while maintaining the embodied energy of the original structure.
