Palatine Ave

Our work with Charlottesville design-build firm Latitude 38 continues with this house for sale on Palatine Avenue near Quarry Park. We’ve been working with Latitude to refine energy specs, systems and details in order to bring down cost, and still deliver premium performance and comfort to the homeowners. I think we’re on the right track, here. The sales price should be on par with the average for all of Charlottesville….not bad for a beautiful, new, modern, energy efficient home! A 6kW photovoltaic system will make this house “net-zero ready” for a moderately energy-conscious homeowner.
