Sustainable Living Community Gets 1st i-hous

Written by Kristy Hessman

One resident of Green Bridge Farm, a sustainable living community in Georgia, just stepped up his commitment to green living by getting the community’s first i-house. The Green Bridge Farm is set on 25-acres around an organic farm where green living practices like LEED homes and community gardening is encouraged.

Green Bridge Farm resident Charles Davis, just completed his new i-house, a sustainably built home that is the community’s first net-zero energy home. The iHouse is built by Clayton Homes. Home buyers can choose from a variety of floor plans that include a number of sustainable features inside and out.

Exterior features of the i-house typically include: solar panels, energy efficient windows, sustainable, low maintenance siding and roofing, a rain water system and composite decking. Inside, the i-house features Energy Star appliances, bamboo floors, no VOC paint, compact fluorescent lighting and water saving features like low flush toilets.

Green Bridge Community is located in Guyton, Georgia. Lots in the neighborhood range from 1.2-1.6 acres and sell for $50,000 to $55,000 per lot. Four acres in the community have been set aside for community space, including community orchards and gardens.
