Other sustainable features of “The House of the Immediate Future” include: solar panels, a Zehnder heat recovery ventilator system, Atrium triple-pane windows, compact fluorescent lighting, EPA WaterSense fixtures, a liquid applied water resistive barrier, a Daikin Altherma ductless heat pump, and potable rainwater harvesting systems. The home is Northwest ENERGY STAR Certified and consumes net zero energy.

So hurry down to the Seattle Center if you are in town this weekend. The house will be open to the public starting September 1st. The Next 50 Celebration starts this weekend and “The House of the Immediate Future” will remain open through October. Habitat for Humanity will then transport this home to its new permanent location in the Rainier Vista Housing Authority development, where it will become a new home for an appreciative family of five.
