Valverde Commons Project
This 1265 square foot home is located in the Town of Taos. Designed by Solar Plans LLC of Arroyo Seco, NM. This home is built using a panelized wall system called Raycore and is designed to be very close to a net zero energy building. Great care was taken during the construction process to eliminate areas where air infiltration could occur. A thermal mass Trombe Wall is utilized to provide heat to the Master Bedroom in addition to the highly efficient radiant floor heat system which is throughout the house. A blower door test and a subsequent ratings test by a certified HERS (home energy ratings system) inspector gives this home a very positive rating.
