S40 E13: Net Zero Comes Together

Previous episode: S40 E12 | Next episode: S40 E14

In this episode:

Today is the day the net-zero house gets turned over to the Powers family.

Kevin and Tommy pick up builder Jeff at the Idea House and drive to Jamestown.

Jeff’s challenges were to make the house efficient but also make it fit in with the neighborhood. Donald meets them outside and shows them the exterior transformation.

The coastal landscape already looks mature and is divided into many separate “rooms” for entertainment and projects.

They see the new post-and-beam barn with a garage, workshop, guest suite, and the location of the new solar panels.

Inside the house, Tommy goes upstairs to meet Dana, who shows him the boys’ rooms, their bathroom, and the new master suite. Kevin helps Jeff put up a mirror in a bathroom.

Tommy and Don comment on how the white oak shiplap siding and flooring, bookcase and hand rails give the living room a clean, simple look.

Kevin meets Richard at the back of the barn, where it’s command central for the net-zero house. The solar panels will provide enough electricity for the house. The heat recovery units quietly pump into five zones so that the house can receive both warm and cool air where needed as well as provide hot water at any time.

Kevin meets Dana in the mudroom where there’s plenty of storage.

In the powder room, they check out the sink console that Don built with Tommy.

The kitchen has seen the biggest transformation with beautiful cabinets, appliances, tile, ceiling and floors, and counters.

The gang joins them and they declare the net-zero house a success.
