An Almost off the Grid house functions on a fraction of the energy required by most homes. It's more comfortable; its air is healthier; it's quieter inside, requires less maintenance and is far cheaper to operate. As oil continues to diminish in availability and rise in price, the Almost off the Grid house proves its worth. This book builds on Sheri Koones' first two books. First was Prefabulous, which described the seven types of prefab construction, proving that prefab and fabulous can co exist. Prefabulous + Sustainable focused on the sustainability, health, and efficiency of prefab houses. Prefabulous + Almost off the Grid takes the focus on energy conservation up a notch, highlighting the many ways that architects, manufacturers and builders are creating homes that are not only efficient but, often, operate at nearly zero annual energy cost. Some even sell their home's overproduction of electricity back to the utility company. The houses in Prefabulous + Almost off the Grid are sustainable, healthy and beautiful. The selection of more than 30 homes feature different degrees of energy efficiency and how each is accomplished. With floor plans and multiple images of the exterior and interior of each home, the book also specifically highlights the healthy and sustainable green qualities of each as well as a list of energy saving elements, covering a wide range of new technologies.
