Farrar Green Home

Escondido, CA United States

Hubbell & Hubbell Architects

 

Project Description

A Metal Sales™ roof system has been chosen to top an ambitious Net-Zero building. Ronda and Nigel Farrar chose to work with Metal Sales on their new 3,000-square-foot home in Escondido, CA. The home overlooks beautiful Lake Hodges and was designed to be a model for green design by utilizing the latest commercially available green building products.

The Farrars are the owners of the new home and its surrounding sustainable farm. The home is one of San Diego County’s first LEED® Platinum homes and is ENERGY STAR® qualified. Their dream of achieving a Net-Zero energy design was realized with help from Metal Sales Manufacturing Corporation.

Metal Sales Magna-Loc panels

The home features 5,000 square feet of 24 gauge Magna-Loc standing seam roof panels in Antique Patina from Metal Sales. More than 100 panel colors from Metal Sales are listed with ENERGY STAR and improve energy efficiency by reflecting sunlight. This provides an energy savings by reducing the amount of energy needed for cooling the home. The steel panels are also 100% recyclable and contain a high percentage of recycled material. Each of these factors contributes to the home’s LEED Platinum certification.
