Sounds like high efficiency, but not like it isn’t truly sustainable to me.
I have looked into a lot of homes. To me a Sustainable home is energy
efficient, provides its own electricity, its own water, and vegetables.

marvels job in construction and accomplishing a green building that will
stay a beautiful design for years into the future.
i blame youtube. i’ve subbed to kristen dirksen’s videos for a couple of

just coming across this. dont know how long they’ve been around though.
Not once did they mention the amount for water, electric and gas bill….
despite throwing the words green and sustainability liberally around. Want
to bet the bill is 2-3 times of that for an average home?
