The line consists of three new models, the Ridge0 ™, the Vista0 ™ and the Contours0 ™, which range in size between 422sf and 2643sf. The Contours0™ and the Vista0™ have interior and exterior rooms designed to maximize natural ventilation and daylight  through large windows, glass doors and skylights. The Ridge0™ uses the Passivhaus principles of good insulation, southern orientation with shading, efficient windows and frames, an air-tight building envelope, energy star appliances and lighting, and passive preheating of fresh air to minimize demand for heating and cooling. The homes also incorporate solar power systems, rain catchment systems and gray water systems.
The Zero Series also incorporates 5 eco principles and green materials and systems and are designed to be LEED certified. And if you prefer, they can even be customized to obtain other green home certifications like Build it Green, NAHB Green Building Standard, or your local green rating program. The new prefab homes  are available exclusively through Studio 101 Designs  and built by Blazer Industries. Prices begin at $66,500.
