Building a home with the intent of reaching a net zero energy balance and low environmental impact as much as possible in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The footprint is 1,100 square feet. So, it's a comfortable size for our family. Serena will likely be working from home at some point, so there is a studio for her. Right now we are home schooling- so we have a "dedicated messy space". But it is less than 50% of what we could have built on the very large corner lot [8,944 ft2]. We could have built a footprint that was 2,325 sq.ft, or a house that was 5,813 square feet in floor area! We will have a lot of land for an edible garden.
