Small House, Big Style. A 625SF two bed/one bath home was built for a mental health rehabilitation center. Budget constraints were met, construction quality was not sacrificed and the home is certified ENERGY STAR®. The monthly heating/cooling bill is guaranteed to be $35 or less, and the homeowner qualified for a 5% discount on electric bills as well as energy efficient mortages.
Very efficient floor plan - no hallways, great closet space,
good flow of rooms for comfortable living
