  • Advanced framing
  • Engineered floor systems
  • Spray foam insulation
  • Tankless hot water heaters with PEX piping
  • Right-sized HVAC with mastic sealed ducts
  • Controlled ventilation with outside air intakes and Energy Recovery Ventilators
  • Recycled materials deconstructed on site
  • Recycling all construction waste
  • Low VOC sealants, paint, and finishes
  • High-performance windows

Media sponsors of the house are TecHome Builder, Green Builder Magazine, and the Southern Building Show. Product sponsors include these PATH Partners: Superior Walls, Vanguard Piping Systems, Inc., Icynene, and Whirlpool Corporation.
