All new housing developments should be like this prefab net-zero community in Washington

All new housing developments should be like this prefab net-zero community in Washington

is an 8-acre net-zero housing development near Winslow on Bainbridge Island. Just a five-minute walk to downtown Winslow, the community is aptly situated to enjoy both the urban and rural pleasures. Although still under construction, the project will ultimately include 131 residential units with 50 single-family homes and 81 multi-family units. The project is organized into micro-neighborhoods grouped around shared green space and gardens. Pathways meander throughout to connect to all the homes as well as to play areas and park-like settings. Owners and renters within the community will have access to car and bike share programs along with gardens in which to grown their own food.
