Bloomington Passive Homestead


On a beautiful hillside in Monroe County, this young family had a vision of self-sufficiency and sustainable living: permaculture with extensive vegetable gardens, fruit and nut trees, and livestock, rainwater harvesting for domestic use and irrigation, and of course, a zero-energy house. Pursuing PHIUS+2018 and Source Zero certification, this home is designed to connect family and friends to the outdoors to enjoy all seasons in comfort and health.
