House of the Immediate Future

Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County

This sustainable home demonstrates that affordable housing can be beautiful. Designed by the Miller Hull Partnership and built by Habitat for Humanity volunteers, the House of the Immediate Future incorporates recycled and reclaimed materials and emphasizes design and construction techniques that minimize energy consumption and waste. A solar array makes the house net-zero, radiant heating and extra insulation translate into low energy use, and a cistern and rainwater harvesting system provide all the water the homeowners need.
