the plan : down size to a Energy Efficient Container Home
We are working to construct a two story residential apartment, with an office and a separate two car garage.
Our new residential structure would be built with the use of four shipping containers designed and built to match the look and feel of the current location. Units will use natural colors, wood siding, and trees to blend the units into the existing gardens and landscape.
The container units will be fabricated offsite by a Carolina Containers and then delivered to the site. Our home will use highly efficient insulation, HVAC and windows will help lower our carbon footprint. In addition, we plan to add sustain power for the home, garage and business with the use of Tesla's Solar Roof and power solution. Sustainability is more than a buzzword to us. It’s a cost saver, an resource saver, and a way of life.
Our container home will be constructed next to our exiting Bonsai Garden and under the Grand Willow Oak at the rear of the property. Trees, shrubs, and a vegetable garden with fill in the rest of the grounds, with water coming from large rain catchment units.
The HOME@TGM project, a small and ultra-sustainable residential structure, that will showcase the many ways in which sustainable living and working can go hand-in-hand with attractive design.
